Originally native to Uruguay and Argentina, Paspalum dilatatum was introduced into the U.S.A. about the middle of the 19th century and is now firmly established and cultivated in the Gulf States where it is known as "Dallis erass" after A. T. Dallis of La Grange, Georgia. It was introduced into Australia by Baron von Mueller about 1880 and since 1898 its cultivation has steadily increased.
