River Oats - Chasmanthium latifolium
River Oats is a native grass to the southeastern United States and northeastern South America. It produces a beautiful seed heads in midsummer that are reminiscent of the sea oats you'd find at the beach. It's named for it's oat-like seed heads and its ability to prosper in river and stream banks.
This cool season grass, River Oats, grows in clumps, and the seed-heads are in panicles, much like oats. The seed-heads also change color throughout the season, from translucent green to rich brown in the summer and fall. However, if the River Oats grass turns yellow, that means that it lacks nutrients.
This ornamental native grass is a great landscape solution for areas of dry shade.
They are easy to maintain, in fact almost maintenance-free, except to keep them under control. Leaving foliage during the winter helps protect the crown from the cold. Once spring comes around, cut back to the ground. River Oats would make a great ornamental plant for your garden. This plant is also good for erosion control and bank stabilization.
In the wild, River Oats are often found growing in the woods along streams or rocky slopes. River Oats is very tolerant of poorer dry soils -- but does mostly prefer moist fertile soil.
When planting River Oats, remember that it will reseed ... so place it in an appropriate location..
