American Beach Grass is a perennial grass that's native to the eastern coast of North America. It's known for its long, narrow leaves and its ability to thrive in sandy soils, making it a common sight on beaches and sand dunes.

One of the most important roles of American Beach Grass is in preventing soil erosion. The grass's extensive root system helps to stabilize sand dunes, protecting them from being washed away by waves and wind. This makes it a crucial plant for preserving coastal ecosystems.

This plant prefers full sun and well-drained, sandy soil. It's also very tolerant of salt and wind, making it well-suited to harsh coastal conditions.
