This US native produces a multitude of beautiful pale green seed heads in midsummer that are reminiscent of the sea oats found at the beach. Panicles droop under their weight and look absolutely beautiful when backlit by the sun. Drooping flowers and bamboo-like foliage make this unique among ornamental grasses. Seed heads add interest to both fresh and dried arrangements.


Easily grown in average, medium to wet, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Tolerant of poor soils, but prefers moist, fertile soils. One of the more shade tolerant of the ornamental grasses. self-seeds and may spread aggressively. Leaving foliage in place over winter adds interest to the landscape and helps protect crowns from the cold. Cut back to the ground in early spring.
