Comments: This is a popular coastal herbaceous grass that is used widely to control sand dune erosion. It can tolerate sandy salty coastal conditions and spreads by underground rhizomes. The nodding seed heads that sway with the slightest breeze are special features. Self seeding can occur to spread a population over coastal beaches.
