River Oats

Rhizomatous, clump-forming clusters of linear, arching dark green leaves on a tall arching stalk topped with loose panicles of tiny flowers. Flowers are very tiny and hard to see with the naked eye, but are followed by and ovoid mass of flat, 'oat-like' seeds that sway in the breeze on the drooping stalk. Spreads by rhizomes and tolerates occasional flooding.
