Pink Muhly Grass
Cotton Candy Blooms in Autumn!

Your Pink Muhly Grass will impress you with its year-round interest and dramatic fall display. The delicate, blue/green grass has a branched nature with a large, airy seedhead that is nearly half as long as the height of the plant itself! In autumn, the lovely seedheads transition to a gorgeous puff of pink/purple brilliance for a stunning display that is sure to set itself apart from anything else in your yard.
The show on your Pink Muhly Grass will continues for several weeks so you’ll be sure to enjoy the dramatic color far into the season. The seedheads fade to shades of tan for winter interest…rounding out the 4-season interest of this remarkable perennial grass.
Pink Muhly Grass will reach 3 feet in height with an equal spread. It’s an easy grass to grow, resistant to drought, heat and humidity as well as air pollution. It’s not fussy about type of soil so you can expect it to grow in various locations in your yard. Deer tend to pass it by, but your birds will certainly love the valuable treat it provides.
Pink Muhly Grass is an easy choice to make when choosing a hardy, decorative plant. Not only does it provide 4-season interest, but its beauty reaches a late season zenith that’s hard to beat in an ornamental grass.
