In the latest example of "Natives Gone Wild" our very own northern sea oats, which ranges from Pennsylvania west to Arizona, has been spotted sporting a new tattoo. This discovery from the folks at Itsaul Plants, forms a typical 30" tall deer-resistant clump of upright green stalks adorned by 9" long x 1" wide leaves, each heavily striped with white. As the flower stalks of Chasmanthium 'River Mist' expand in early summer, the variegation follows the new growth into the developing seed heads. Darn, this is one sexy native, so get your own variegated northern sea oats!
