Botanical Interests Northern Sea Oats Grass Seeds, Perennial in USDA zones 4-8.
Northern Sea Oats is an ornamental clumping U.S. native grass with foliage reminiscent of bamboo leaves. A relative of true oats, its nodding seed heads dance in the slightest wind. Its foliage and seeds turn a rich coppery red as temperatures cool in autumn, then mature to bronze as winter draws near. You can grow them in garden beds, borders, containers, as a ground cover for large areas, or enjoy them as single specimens. Leave them standing for their fall beauty or cut for dried flower arrangements that last for years. Plants started in early spring will bloom the first year.
When to plant outside: Spring, after average last frost.
When to start inside: 6 weeks before average last frost.
Chasmanthium - latifolium

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
