Northern Sea Oats


One of the few taller ornamental grasses that can be grown successfully in part shade, Northern Sea Oats features upright clumps of bamboo-like foliage and decorative, oat-like green seed heads in midsummer that turn purplish bronze in fall. The seeds are wonderful for dried arrangements, but also spread the plant around the garden. Deer resistant.

Early in the season, many plants are pruned to encourage later fullness, and therefore may vary in size from the photo and size range. Rest assured, they hold the same glorious potential.
