Northern Sea Oats Grass Chasmanthium latifolium
This is an appealing grass that resembles a small bamboo plant. The thick leaf blades form and out of them appear threadlike wire stems that support the flattened coppery-brown spikelets. These spikelets hold onto the plant well into the winter and make a great accent in any perennial garden. The mature height is 2-3′ and 2′ wide.
