Pink Muhly Grass, Muhlenbergia capillaris, is a must have for the low maintenance garden. Pink Muhly Grass is an absolute show stopping source of late-season color. When summer is winding down and all the your summers annuals, flowering perennials and flowering shrubs are fading, your pink muhly grass with its giant puffs of cotton candy pink like plumes is just beginning its autumn dance of color. Pink Muhly Grasses 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!
