While the summer bloomers are tiring out in the fall garden, Pink Muhlygrass is looking its best. September to November it is covered in airy pink clouds of flowers above the foliage.

It is a native clump forming grass that grows in sun to part shade in well drained soil reaching 2-3′ in flower. It even tolerates drought, poor soils, city conditions and growing under Black Walnut.

Use it in perennial borders, cottage gardens or native plantings. I think it looks best when massed together. So if you have a large area with poor soil Muhlenbergia capillaris could be the solution.
