Inland sea oats ( Chasmanthium latifolium) are a type of grass native to the Great Lakes area. Their delicate seed heads shake in unison during the strong lake breezes and create a soft rattlesnake noise. Also known as woodoats, inland sea oats, northern sea oats, and river oats, they are often only as as tall as your knee. Their resistance to high winds is inspiring. They are a pretty beige color in winter, often covered in frost, snow or ice. Throughout their growing season, they show off green, blue and deep red tones.
