  1. Did you grow the Northern Sea Oats (Chasmanthium latifolium) from seed; a friend just gave me a few stems I hope the seeds are ripe, it is a beautiful grass. your garden is still looking full of colour and vigour, Jason. It would be good if you could extend that planting onto the roadside verge.

  2. Thanks for sharing the lovely photos. The swamp milkweed seed heads look like angel hair. I really love those sea oats. Enjoy the fall! The Willamette Valley is sort of stuck in summer with temps continuing in the 80s and high 70s with nights that cool down. It has been a very different year for us.
