Northern Sea Oats is unique for its signature drooping seed heads and bamboo-like leaves, but is also more shade-tolerant than most tall grasses. This grass is attractive near ponds or moving water, and birds are attracted to the seed heads in the summer and fall. Green leaves turn coppery in the fall, then may brown out in the winter. Cut back the foliage in late winter or early spring before new shoots begin to emerge.
