Chasmanthium latifolium, also known as northern wood-oats, inland sea oats, northern sea oats, and river oats is a grass species that has a native range from Southern Canada, down through the Central and Eastern United States and Northeastern Mexico. The species was previously classified as Uniola latifolia. C. latifolium is a host plant for butterfly larvae as well as a food source for small mammals and birds. C. Latifolium typically grows 2 to 5 feet tall with broad bladed leaves. It grows easily in moist to wet well-drained soils in part sun to part shade. USDA Hardiness Zones 5 to 8.

Chasmanthium latifolium seeds should be placed in a moist medium such as sand, coco coir, or peat during a cold stratification period of 6 to 8 weeks at temperatures around 40ºF. After that period, move to temperatures around 60-70ºF for germination. Seeds should be sprinkled across the surface of your soil medium and lightly pressed in, but not covered. Used a well draining potting mix. C. latifolium seeds will germinate in approximately 1 to 2 weeks after sowing. Even with optimal conditions, germination may be slow and sporadic.  Established plants prefer light well draining soil mixes and full sun to partial shade.
