Dried Northern Sea Oat
Dried Northern Sea Oat : Northern sea oats is a perennial ornamental grass that can be planted in late spring (after the threat of frost has passed) or in the fall. It is a member of the Poaceae family, making it a true grass. In some regions, it is a vigorous enough spreader to be considered invasive. The first shoots in spring are blue-green. An established plant will have grown 2 to 3 feet high by mid-summer, displaying loose clumps of green foliage. The leaf blades are lance-shaped, arching, and bear a mid-green color.
By late summer, it begins to bear panicles of its namesake oat-like, green flower heads, which are its chief ornamental feature. Not only are these flower heads visually appealing with their jagged edges, but they also flutter in the wind, creating a rustling sound that adds interest to the landscape.
But while the plant does afford summer interest, northern sea oats comes into its own in fall. This is when the flower heads begin to ripen into seed heads and change to a bronze color. As fall progresses, the leaf blades change to a golden color to complement the seed heads. Although the foliage color eventually fades to a tan color, the plant continues to offer landscape interest in winter. for more information please read Iran Northern Sea Oat specification .
