Sea Oats Invade Hill House Lawn


The Sea Oats have taken over!

Chasmanthium paniculata, a vivid green, perennial ornamental grass originating by the ocean, were planted in our garden years ago, and have become quite the cantankerous species, invading all our garden beds and stealing away the sunshine and rain from our other plants.


We’ll be spending the next year pulling these out and transplanting them to the back of the Hill House property where their brilliant green is a welcome addition.¬† And, we just found out they are edible, so maybe we’ll make some sea oat muffins this fall, when the seeds are to be harvested.
