Northern Sea Oats

A clumping, deciduous grass with rich, bamboo-like foliage that reaches a height of 2-3'. The drooping, flat flower spikes are a pretty green in the summer and will mature to copper late in autumn while the foliage takes on lovely coppery brown tones. Northern Sea Oats is one of the few ornamental grasses that will tolerate some shade, preferring a part shade site. Not particularly fast growing, it will benefit from regular division every few years.

Plant Features:

  • Height: 2 - 3'
  • Spread: 2 - 2'
  • Zone: 4 - 9

Dan & Sue

When I shopped at Zehr’s I was greeted by a worker with the friendly, “Is there anything I can help you with?” greeting and then escorted to the area where the specific shrub I was looking for was located. It saved me time and I greatly appreciated that!
