A clumping grass, reminiscent of bamboo leaves, River Oats is a shade tolerant grass, and remains attractive through most of the year! Its unique seed heads look as if they have been pressed and dance and rustle in the wind! During the fall the foliage turns first red and then bronze. Leave it standing for it's beauty or add them to your dried flower arrangements!
