    Pink Muhly Grass

    Posted by Patricia Bredouw on Oct 14 , 2020

    I appreciated the prompt service. It would have been a bit easier had the plants been divided. I ordered 4 plants and received one largish clump.

    I recieved everything very fast and in great condition. I planted them the very next day. Everything looks good right now, but they are only plugs right now. I am so looking forward to seeing them grow and mature. Thank you.

Description

Pink Muhly Grass is a Stunning Pink Explosion of Color

Pink Muhly Grass - Muhlenbergia capillaris is native to the eastern United States. It 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 Provides a Fantastic Color and Texture to an Herbaceous Border 

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.

The grass needs to be cut back during early spring.

The 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 it 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.

Landscaping offers much scope for the imagination with almost unlimited possibilities. Along with a profusion of useful plants that double as a food source (berry plants) and brightly colored foliage, flowers, and berries. Many gardeners and homeowners want the extra treat of ornamental plants that surprise and delight onlookers throughout the year.

  A blue-ribbon winner in the ornamental plant category is the grass. In early spring, delicate blue-green foliage appears and grows to a height of 4 feet with a spread of 3 feet. Just after planting, pink Muhly grass benefits from gentle watering and a small amount of fertilizer. Once established, the plant needs little to no intervention except some watering in extreme drought conditions.

  Pink muhly grass is resistant to deer and insects and thrives in almost any type of soil. The crowning glory of this plant, whose scientific name is Muhlenbergia capillaries, is the feathery blooming of fleecy, soft pink, or lavender-colored blossoms. That burst forth in the fall when other plants are turning brown and dying.

  Muhlenbergia capillaries look exquisite indoors, planted in large decorative planters, incorporated into dried-flower arrangements or wreaths, or outdoors in garden areas, along driveways, between shrubs, on either side of a garden gate, or as a backdrop to lower-growing flower beds.

  Trimming it back near the end of winter allows for the removal of any dried branches and sets the stage for a new beginning in the spring. Few plants will add as much beauty and variety to your outdoor space as it.
