(Northern Sea Oats) A native grass variety, Chasmanthium latifolium, or commonly known as Northern Sea Oats, adds beauty and texture to the garden and landscape. Standing up to 3 feet tall, Chasmanthium latifolium has bamboo like foliage, with clusters of dropping seed heads that appear late summer. With the slightest wind, the seed heads of Chasmanthium flutter in the breeze. Starting off green, the seed heads turn a coppery color by late summer. A perfect specimen for cut flower arrangements, Chasmanthium latifolium adds texture and beauty to the garden and decor alike. Planted in full sun to full shade, this drought tolerant variety is a warm season grass.
