A versatile performer, clump-forming Wood Oats calls the American Southeast its home. Whether surging upright in a sunny spot, or growing more lax in a shadier location, the rich green, bamboo-like foliage makes a pendulous foil for its prized flowers.
Bearing a resemblance to oats, pale green spikelets dangle on slender, arching stems. As autumn arrives, the showy inflorescences turns a reddish bronze, while broad blades are set aglow with a vibrant gold. Paling to light salmon, the flowers stay intact through winter and are lovely when frosted
with snow. Sultry and verdantly superb, this warm season grower brings captivating detail to the border or
an arrangement, can handle salt spray, and even tolerates dry soil in dappled shade.
Size: 3'–4' high x 2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 5.
Chasmanthium latifolium (G-0101)
