Dune Grass
Description Dune grass (Ammophila breviligulata), also known as beachgrass or marram grass, is a perennial grass. This plant strengthens coastal resilience as an important dune stabilizer. Dune grass thrives in sandy, well-drained soil. Dune grass can withstand burial (up to 20 ft.) within a shifting dune. Its roots form a thick mat to knit a dune together and the grasses’ stems reduce wind erosion. Pretty and useful, dune grass is great in dunes and along shoreline. The plant provides important habitat for birds. View the dune grass planting and care guide here.
