Sea Oats, Uniola paniculata

Commonly seen growing wild on sand dunes beside the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. This is a protected plant in Florida and Georgia because of its vital role in erosion control along coastlines. Mature seed heads are attractive and commonly used in dried flower arrangements. Very salt and drought tolerant. Will stand up to frost.
