For best results with Chasmanthium Latifolium (Sea Oats), plant in sun or partial shade in fertile, moist, well-drained soil, though they will tolerate poorer soil once established. Cut back stems close to ground level from late February through to the end of March (leaving foliage over Winter will help to protect the crowns from frost). Remove seed heads in late Autumn if you wish to avoid self-seeding.
