Muhlenbergia capillaris Pink Muhly Grass
Tolerates heat, humidity, poor soil, and even DROUGHT!
The grass forms a nice little hedge, edging, or middle-of-the-border ribbon of color from spring through summer, but when the rosy-pink plumes arise on 4-foot stems, it grabs the garden spotlight! These plumes are so finely-cut they look airbrushed in. Perfect for indoor arrangements, they keep their color and texture beautifully outdoors as well, lasting through fall as the birds come to feast. Stunning!
Pink Muhly Grass reaches 4 feet high and 3 feet wide, with a nicely cascading, fountainous habit of foliage and fanned-out, unbelievably profuse blooms. Give it plenty of sunshine and good soil drainage, and it will do the rest, beautifully withstanding heat, humidity, drought, and poor soil!
Long-lived and impervious to pests and disease, this North American native is a must-have in the low-maintenance garden. Plant it en masse and enjoy the late-season color for years to come! Zones 6-10.
