Muhlenbergia capillaris is a beautiful ornamental grass that thrives in the California landscape. It adds a stunning visual impact to any garden with its attractive and delicate burgundy-pink flowers that cover the landscape in a pink cloud-like haze.
Pink Muhly Grass, also known as Hairy Awn Muhly or Purple Muhly, is a perennial clumping grass that produces pink to lavender-pink, airy inflorescences in the fall that float above the foliage. The blooms have a fluffy and delicate texture and add a unique look to any garden. The foliage is narrow, glossy green with a graceful arching habit that actively grows during the warmer months and goes dormant during winter as the foliage changes to some degree of brown depending on the regional microclimate. New growth emerges in spring as Muhlenbergia capillaris awakens from dormancy.
Low maintenance and drought tolerant, Pink Muhly Grass is versatile and can be used in many garden designs, including meadow, woodland, borders, rock gardens, and mass plantings. The airy inflorescences provide visual interest even in the winter months when the seed plumes are dried and light brown, making this grass an excellent choice for a winter garden.
