Milky Oats are easily grown in average, moist but well-drained soils in full to partial sun. This plant is characterized by its long, green stems and small, green oats. The oats can be eaten, used in dishes like cereals. When the oats are young, they produce a milky liquid when squeezed. This liquid is beneficial for medicinal purposes and is said to strengthen and nourish the nervous system.
