DC’s Gardenwise on Pink Muhly Grass
Today it’s all about one of my favorite Fall show stoppers — Pink Muhly Grass (Muhlenbergia capillaries.) It reaches about 4’x3′, with a nicely cascading, fountainous habit of cloud-like foliage. It also has billowy and profuse blooms. Pink Muhly is a North American native, and looks great en masse in a sunny garden border with hot-pink Knock Out Roses, or as a companion to fall blooming Sedum ‘Autumn Joy.’ Pink Muhly Grass is drought tolerant, so planting this beauty is a nice green garden step, and it’s a real “problem solver” for any landscape architect/designer.
