Muhlenbergia capillaris Muhly Grass is also known as Hairawn Muhly Grass or Gulf Muhly Grass. It is admired for its reddish, pinkish color penicle blooms that rise above rich green clumps of blade-type leaves that grow 30" to 36" inches tall. This perennial warm season grass is well suited for all types of garden styles where diversity, texture and movement are desired. The gorgeous blooms are highly sought after by floral professionals who use them as a fresh cut flower element and in their everlasting form when dried. The dried blooms remain color stable and resist fading. Muhly ornamental grass is very resistant against diseases and pests. It actually provides seed for small birds and its bunches are ideal for small mammals to take shelter in during winter months and to nest in the spring. Although this grass is drought tolerant, you will have a longer, more floriferous bloom season if your plants are in well-drained soil and get consistent moisture in a sunny garden location. Low maintenance once roots are well established and hardy to zone 6. Packet: 25 seeds
