River Oats are a very useful perennial native bunch grass. They provide ornamental and decorative diversity to native grass and wildflower mixtures. They also provide wildlife habitat. They are also called Inland Sea Oats, but have no salt tolerance like regular Sea Oats. River Oats spread by short rhizomes and seed. There is some shade tolerance and drought tolerance, but they will perform best in moist soils and will tolerate some flooding.
