The beautiful golden brown branches of seed clusters appear next. The achene seed of wool grass comprises of unique bristles known to give the heads of the seed a wooly appearance bordering an attractive look.

Wool grass is native to the southern Canadian provinces. It also vastly extends to the United States of America. This species of plant is adamant in the Northeast area of the Coastal Plain.
