This week Mr.CC and I helped some other owners here at our complex plant 5400 sea oats...now that's a BOATLOAD of plants! All of you know how much I love to play in the dirt...well I love to play in the sand too! We did this so our sand dunes will build back up after the past storms that we have had here on the gulf coast. After all the hard work that was put into this project, I sure hope all vistors will read the signs posted and keep out of this area so the plants will grow. Here is a little info on SEA OATS!
Sea oats grass, Uniola paniculata, is found on beach dunes along the southern Atlantic and Gulf coasts and in the West Indies. The grass grows well in the salty, windy environment found in these areas. The grass is important because of its ability to establish itself on beach dunes, stabilizing the dune and preventing erosion. Sea oats grass is considered an endangered species in Louisiana and is protected in Alabama, Florida and Georgia.
