Pink Muhly Grass
Pink Muhly Grass - Muhlenbergia capillaris is native to the eastern United States. Pink Muhly Grass can grow to three to four feet high and three feet wide. Tiny flowers rise above the blades of Pink Muhly Grass. This grass is known for being easy to grow and tolerant of drought.
If you plant a row of pink muhly grass along the edge of your lawn or anywhere else on your property, it will eventually turn heads and stop traffic. It is merely an explosion of pink or light purple that resembles everything from the cotton candy to pink clouds to ballerinas’ tutus.
Pink Muhly Grass prefers full sun
The pink that everyone gasps at is the grass’s small flowers that grow above its blades. They provide fantastic color and texture to an herbaceous border. It is even more astonishing because the inflorescences arrive in the fall when just about everything else is going to sleep. Moreover, when the flowers also fade the seed pods add beauty to a winter garden.
It is not particular about soil and can thrive in poor, rocky soil as long as it drains well. Even so, this robust grass can stand some flooding for a time. To get the best effect, plant each one about 2 feet apart in the sunniest spot of the garden. The grass not only likes full sun but the light will show off the flowers.
Pink Muhly Grass needs to be cut back during early spring.
Pink muhly grass only needs to be often watered when it is first planted, but once it’s established, the gardener can pretty much ignore it. It will just need watering under the severest drought. If the gardener wants to fertilize the grass, they can use a diluted fertilizer in the spring. Early spring is also the time to cut the grass back and get rid of any dead blades.
Propagating pink muhly grass is about as easy as growing it. Dig the plant up in the cold season, divide the root ball with a spade right down the middle, and replant either in the ground or a container. Water the transplants regularly until they are established.
