The Muhlenbergia capillaris (Hairawn Muhly or Muhly Grass) is in full swing right now showing off it’s pink inflorescence on stiff upright stems. Growing to 3-4′ high and wide it’s obviously best planted in large groups like this to make an impact. Great on it’s own or planted with perennials like Threadleaf Bluestar (Amsonia hubrichtii), Purple or Pink Asters, Helen von Stein Lamb’s Ear (Stachys byzantina). Even the seedheads of Purple Coneflowers (Echinacea) left standing make a great contrast.
