American beakgrain is an attractive, easy-to-grow grass. Because it spreads through rhizomes, it can colonize and be used as a ground cover in forest settings or shady areas. It could also be used for erosion control on slopes and tolerates flooding. The long, arching leaves are attractive in winter when they are a bright tan color.
