Description from GrassBase.

Habitat/ecology:  In Guam, "a harmless weed of open ground, in sandy and limestone soils.  The plants can withstand long periods of drought." (Stone, 1970; p. 190).  In Hawai‘i, "naturalized in dry, well-drained sandy soils, on lava, and in disturbed sites such as along roadsides, trails, and borders of fields, 0-470 m" (Wagner et al., 1999; pp. 1545, 1909).  In Fiji, "moderately common in waste places and clearings, along roadsides, on dry, bare hillsides, and in moist hollows on hillsides, at elevations from sea level to about 200 m; ...a minor weed of cultivation and waste places" (Smith, 1979; pp. 303-304).  In New Caledonia, "espèce variable, largement répandue et très commune" (MacKee, 1994; p. 59). "Common in lawns and in sunny, disturbed places" (Whistler, 1988; p. 52).

Propagation:  Seed

Native range:  Paleotropics, now widely naturalized throughout the tropics (Wagner et al., 1999; p. 1545). Southern tropical Asia (Smith, 1979; pp. 303-304). Fosberg et al. (1987; p. 42) lists as native in Micronesia; Fosberg and Sachet (1987; p. 4) list as introduced to Kiribati.
