If It Has to Get Cold

Chasmanthium latifolium (Northern Sea Oats) seed head beginning to turn , Brooklyn
at least there will be some color first. Here the pretty seed heads of some Chasmanthium latifolium I passed on my way to the farmers market today. The color is subtle right now and kind of captures the feeling of anticipation of full-on Autumn for me. If I was growing this shade-tolerant East Coast native grass, I'd probably be cutting some of those seed heads to bring in for a bouquet.
