Pink Muhly Grass is a wonderful airy grass that produces clouds of purplish-pink flowers in late summer and all through fall. Forming an upright clump of thin, green wiry leaves at first, it then sends up a foot-tall cloud of pink that hovers over it and makes a spectacular garden show. Even in winter the flowers, which turn tan and beige, look dramatic and lovely. Grow this perennial plant in the foreground of larger beds, plant it among shrubs and evergreens in rocky and sandy areas or grow it in planters and pots. For wonderful late-summer and fall color, combined with a unique cloud-like form, this native plant can’t be beaten.

  • Gorgeous airy clouds of rich purplish-pink
  • Attractive in summer, fall and all through winter
  • Perfect soft look for the front of beds
  • Non-invasive and stays in neat clumps
  • Native to eastern north America for natural plantings

Pink Muhly Grass should be planted in full sun, and it tolerates some partial shade too. Grow it in well-drained soils, especially in colder zones, and it thrives in almost all gardens without any problems. Pests, diseases, rabbits and deer all leave it alone, and a quick cutting-back in late winter or spring is all it needs – just once a year.
