This grass is tolerant of salinity and a broad range of pH. After establishment, 碱 sacaton is tolerant of drought and water inundation. However, it is intolerant of shade and is found growing in open areas.
Due to its stress tolerance to heat and poor soils, 碱Sacaton is an important grass for soil stabilization in tough environments where other grasses typically
