Sand Cordgrass (Spartina bakeri) is a native, warm-season perennial grass found primarily in the coastal regions of the southeastern United States. Known for its adaptability and resilience, this grass is an excellent choice for stabilizing dunes, preventing erosion, and providing habitat for wildlife.
Sand Cordgrass grows in dense clumps, reaching a height of 4 feet and a spread of 4 to 5 feet. It is well-suited for USDA hardiness zones 8 through 11 and can tolerate a variety of soil types, including sandy, loamy, or clay soils. Its ability to withstand salt spray and periodic flooding makes it a popular choice for coastal landscapes and restoration projects. Sand Cordgrass is also drought-tolerant and requires minimal maintenance once established.
The foliage of Sand Cordgrass is one of its most attractive features. Its long, slender, arching leaves are blue-green to gray-green in color and have a slightly rough texture. The foliage provides a soft, flowing appearance in the landscape and adds textural interest to coastal gardens, meadows, or naturalized areas.
Sand Cordgrass produces unique and interesting flowers in the form of narrow, elongated inflorescences, which emerge in late summer to early fall. The flowers are initially green, turning to a golden brown as they mature. They are arranged in a series of branches along an upright, central stalk, creating a delicate, feathery appearance. The flowers are wind-pollinated and are not particularly showy, but they add a subtle layer of texture and color to the landscape.
