Inland Seaoats (Chasmanthium latifolium (Uniola latifolia))
Inland Seaoats (Chasmanthium latifolium (Uniola latifolia)) Also called Nortern Sea Oats or River Oats. One of the most ornamental of all our native grasses, Inland Sea Oats is remarkable for its extraordinary seed heads.
The flat, wheat-like seeds catch sunlight in a most flattering way, especially in the evening and morning. Grows two to three feet tall in full sun or moderate shade. Not a true prairie grass, it is found in nature in wooded flood plains and shaded slopes.
Performs admirably on well-drained to slightly damp soils, and is excellent for planting under the light shade of oaks and hickories. Looks great when planted along semi-shaded woodland edges. The seed heads are positively stunning in dried arrangements!
Hardy to Zone 4 in a protected location.
