Green during the spring and summer, the seed heads turn to light golden brown in the fall and early winter. The leaves turn bronze during the winter and may be
bright yellow gold in sunnier sites. Inland Sea Oats is not the same plant as Sea Oats (Uniola paniculate) which grows in sand dunes along subtropical coastal areas.
