Why plant Audubon® Northern Sea Oats?

A good bird-friendly landscape includes several layers of plants to supply a variety of habitats. Each species of bird has its preferred niche. Trees are important here, but so are low-growing plants that offer cover to ground-dwelling birds like towhees, juncos, sparrows, and mourning doves. Northern Sea Oats does this beautifully. It also provide seeds for the birds from mid-summer through fall. In spring, birds may return once more to gather nesting material from the dried stems. As a result, you may want to leave your Northern Sea Oats standing over the winter to maximize its usefulness to wildlife.

Northern Sea Oats is a bit of a misnomer, because it’s not really a coastal species—it only looks like one. It prefers moist, partly shaded riverbanks and creeksides and is more correctly called River Oats. There aren’t a lot of Fringes that accept less than full sun, but this is one that is naturally adapted to shady conditions. An American native, River Oats ranges from Pennsylvania to New Jersey and south to Mexico. This hardy soul is also found in Canada, where the mercury can dip to -40ºF.

What is the definition of Native?

“In the United States, a native plant is defined as one that was naturally found in a particular area before European colonization. Native plants are the foundation of a region’s biodiversity, providing essential food sources and shelter for birds, especially those threatened by the changing climate. Since native plants are adapted to local precipitation and soil conditions, they generally require less upkeep, therefore helping the environment and saving you time, water, and money.” – The National Audubon Society

How To Plant Audubon® Northern Sea Oats

Northern Sea Oats is easy to grow for even novice gardeners. Give it a site in full sun or part shade. It will appreciate regular water in sun; in shady situations it will need less irrigation and can withstand periods of drought. Northern Sea Oats may reseed prolifically when happy. Don’t plant it near dainty plants that may be overtaken; it’s better as a space filler where seedlings are welcome. Cut back plants in late winter or whenever they begin to look unsightly. This is a warm-season grower that gets a late start in spring. Have patience.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
