This past winner of the NC Wildflower of the Year is one of the few ornamental grasses that thrives in shady conditions. Northern sea oats have a short, basal tuft of wide, grassy deer resistant leaves that give rise to 4' stalks with dramatic grain-like flowers...great for flower arrangers! Northern sea oats grow best in a naturalistic garden, either in the border or by the water...they tend to seed nearby unless you make lots of dried arrangements.
