Description

Muhlenbergia capillaris is one of the most exciting members of the grass world. Pink Muhly Grass is sought after for several reasons: spectacular pink plume color, drought tolerance and undemanding nature. Pink Muhly Grass grows in a mound with erect, blue-green foliage until September when spectacular, billowing pink seed heads form a cotton-candy crown. When planted in masses, the dramatic effect can take your breath away.

Because it is drought tolerant and requires little attention once established, Muhlenbergia capillaris is used extensively on highway medians, golf courses and in home landscapes. It’s excellent on steep banks. Pink Muhly Grass should be cut back in early spring, but cut well above the crown (3-4”) to preserve growing points. When planted in masses, allow adequate spacing for good air circulation to help prevent tar spot (Phyllachora). If planting in fall, plant at least a month before first frost in improve overwintering.
