Chasmanthium latifolium is an ornamental grass with soft seed heads that turns purplish-brown in the summer. It is one of the most shade-tolerant grasses. Plants spread through rhizomes and foliage should be retained through the winter to protect the plant.

Chasmanthium latifolim is a larvae host to caterpillars of northern pearly eyed butterflies, and skippers. Birds also use the grass as cover and feed on seeds from the plant.
