“Northern Sea Oats” is a clumping deciduous grass treasured for its showy, drooping flowers and rich bamboo-like foliage. The attractive foliage changes from green in Spring to copper in Fall and brown in Winter, the interesting flat flower heads do the same and persist on the plant well into Winter. A versatile performer in the garden, it’s also excellent for large containers and is lovely in dried arrangements. Rich soil is the best.

A versatile performer, clump-forming Wood Oats calls the American Southeast its home. Whether surging upright in a sunny spot, or growing more lax in a shadier location, the rich green, bamboo-like foliage makes a pendulous foil for its prized flowers. Bearing a resemblance to oats, pale green spikelets dangle on slender, arching stems. As autumn arrives, the showy inflorescences turns a reddish bronze, while broad blades are set aglow with a vibrant gold. Paling to light salmon, the flowers stay intact through winter and are lovely when frosted with snow. Sultry and verdantly superb, this warm season grower brings captivating detail to the border or an arrangement, can handle salt spray, and even tolerates dry soil in dappled shade.
