Chasmanthium laxum thrives in rich woods, meadows, and swamps, particularly in coastal plain regions of the Eastern and Southeastern U.S. It often inhabits the same areas as its close cousin, Chasmanthium sessiliflorum. Although taller, Chasmanthium laxum has a more delicate habit than Chasmanthium sessiliflorum. Arrowhead-shaped, persistent seed heads lend a subtle beauty to this little-known native grass. Slender Woodoats is well-suited for naturalistic plantings and restoration projects in shady or partially sunny areas. It does double duty by adding grace and movement to cultivated gardens. Adapts to coarse, fine, and medium textured soils and is moderately drought tolerant. Chasmanthium are inland grasses formerly included in Uniola with true sea oats; however, they have nothing to do with the sea.
