Oats

Design and Habit


marshway added on May 28, 2017 | Answered

I love the look of Northern Sea Oats. Can they be grown as a foundation/bed planting or are they too invasive? I've seen them here in New York, at Wave Hill, but I'm wondering about their suitability in Atlanta, GA. Thank you so much Ms. M. Heiman

It can take work to keep them contained, but if your willing to do so for the effect of these grasses, by all means-use them.
You may want to check on other ornamental grasses to see if any other species would create the effect you are looking for.
