Pink Haze Muhly Grass

6 Sep

Pink Haze Muhly (Muhlenbergia capillaris) evergreen, dense mound to 2 ft. in height, 4 ft. when in bloom, narrow blue-green blades, showy pink flowers in summer, full sun to light shade, drought tolerant, good cut flower.

In autumn, this unique specimen creates a spectacular, billowy inflorescence of massed, vibrant pink, airy flowers on 4-foot stems. It is noted for its tolerance to poorly drained soil. It is possibly hardy to Zone 6 with protection.

Noteworthy characteristics: Muhlenbergias create textural drama which, in some species, is enhanced by deeply colored flowers. Some make exceptional specimens, and all are great en masse in borders, meadows, and native gardens. Most species are native to Mexico, Asia, and the U.S.

Care: Muhlenbergias thrive in full sun or partial shade in average, moist, but well-drained soil; however, most are tolerant of drought, heat, and poor soils.

Propagation: Divide plants or sow seed in spring.
