Chasmanthium Latifolium Grasses

Chasmanthium Latifolium (Sea Oats)

Chasmanthium Latifolium grasses are striking tall, clump forming deciduous grasses with lush, broad, fresh bright green leaves that are almost bamboo-like, turning bronze and then eventually brown in Winter. Unusual, showy, flattened seed heads appear on upright stems in Summer – green at first and then turning a purplish bronze by late Summer. A wonderful low maintenance but eye-catching addition to a border.

Incredibly versatile, Chasmanthium Latifolium grasses are as happy in full sun through to shade. Perfect for architectural planting schemes, beds and borders, or in a prairie style garden, ‘difficult’ areas such as steep banks. They can look stunning as a focal point planted in swathes with other grasses or mix with Achillea, Rudbeckia or Echinacea for splashes of delightful contrasting colour.

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.
