    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.

    Plant Care

    Pink Muhly Grass is a low-maintenance grass that requires minimal care to thrive and can add beauty to any garden. Easy to grow and adaptable to a variety of soil types but requires well-draining soil. Best in full sun and is tolerant of light afternoon shade in hotter inland regions. The plant will become floppy if planted in too much shade.

    After planting, water deeply and regularly to develop a good root system. Reduce frequency as needed. Muhlenbergia capillaris grows well in regular moisture but is very drought-tolerant once established. Occasional irrigation in hotter summer months will keep Pink Muhly looking its best.

    Pink Muhly Grass is hardy in USDA zones 6-9 and is dormant in the winter months. New leaves will grow in the spring. Tidy up the plant in late winter or early spring by raking through the clump to remove dead foliage or cut back when new growth is flushing.
