Look Ahead to Fall Day 1

Pink Muhly Grass

For the next week,   GardenWise is looking forward with our five favorite Garden Delights,     in no particular order, for Fall 2011. 

Today it’s all about one of my favorite Fall show stoppers — Pink Muhly Grass (Muhlenbergia capillaries.)  It reaches about four feet high and three feet wide, 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.
