A tall grass that is protected in most states. It has a long root structure that makes it a good choice for soil stabilization. The grass holds tightly in sandy or loose soils.


Can be found on barrier islands and sandy coastal beaches.


Pigmy owls nest in sea oats because it offers wonderful concealment from preditors.
