Member of the Poaceae family. Indian woodoats reach a height of 2-4 feet tall and are found in wooded areas or riparian zones of the eastern United States. Seeds of this plant form clumps at the end of arched, thin branches. As mid-summer and fall begin, a color change occurs in the plant: the leaves turn golden/yellow, while the seed clumps change to an ivory color before browning and falling from the plant.
