Perennial Oat Grass adds delicate beauty to borders where its seed heads sway gently in the breeze. Its seeds are a nourishing food source for wildlife. Oat Grass is an excellent addition to habitat gardens.

Seed collection is very easy. Wait for the seed clusters to turn brown and strip them from the plant. Allow them to dry on a plate for a few days and either crumble or pick apart the seed heads to separate the seeds. Allow the separated seeds to dry a few more days before packing.
