Beachgrass is native to the Atlantic Coast and the Great Lakes.  It is more strongly rhizomatous, less sensitive to high temperatures and somewhat longer-lived than European beachgrass.   American beachgrass is a tough, coarse, erect perennial with hard, scaly, creeping rhizomes and dense, spike-like seedheads.  Seed is generally infertile. American beachgrass has proved to be the best plant for initial stabilization of moving sand.  Stems from the plant form a mechanical barrier which slows and then traps moving sand.
