Northern sea oats (Chasmanthium latifolium) grow in clumps of 1 to 2-1/2 feet in width with long stems that produce many long grass leaves at various intervals along the stem


Leaves droop and arch slightly toward the ground. Leaf color depends on sun exposure. Plants in shadier areas produce darker green foliage whereas full-sun plantings have brighter yellowish green growth. Generally, the plant wants full sun but shows above-average tolerance for part shade, which supports its suitability in woodland environments.
During August and September, green flowers bloom from the stalks.


The small flowers grow in flat clusters with points at the end of each flower segment. They somewhat resemble agricultural oats. Flowers droop from thin stems growing off the top of the central stalk. Flowers and mature seed heads are known for rustling in even slight breezes.
