Northern Sea Oats
Chasmanthium latifolium

Long, green blades of grass cover stems that slightly resemble miniature bamboo. In the summer, flatten wheat-like seeds bend the stems and move gracefully with the summer breeze. Beautiful fall colors that fade into brown during the winter. Provides an excellent shelter and food source for birds during the winter.
 

Water regularly , prefers moist soils. Plant in part shade to part sun. A fast grower that can quickly reach 3' tall and 2' wide. Grows well in poor soils, which makes this plant great for most yards. Cut back in late winter before new growth emerges. Provides year-round interest. Looks best in rock gardens and around water features.
