Uniola paniculata Sea Oats- Sea Oats ususally is the most conspicuous plant growing on the sand dunes behind wave-washed beaches along the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coasts. It grows from underground stems (called rhizomes) in elongate colonies where the winds shift and swirl the sand. The leaves are up to 2 feet long and 1 inch wide. In summertime the 6 foot above-ground stems (called culms) terminate in gracefully drooping 18 inch clusters (called panicles) of flat, yellowish, 1.5 inch long seedheads called spikelets (those botanists have to have a technical name for everything!) Sea Oats occurs on sand dunes along the Atlantic coast from Virginia to Florida and around the Gulf to eastern Mexico, and in the northern West Indies. Sea Oats does well in full or partial sunlight.

Ornamental Grasses are starting to become popular with gardeners around the world, and have always been a part of the natural landscapes of the earth. Because of their versatility, they are being used more and more frequently in the home garden. Most grasses will grow in areas where other plants will not survive. Grasses planted should be well watered the first season after planting so they can develop a good root system. Established plants do not need regular watering, but may need supplemental watering during drought periods.
