Muhlenbergia capillaris - (Pink Muhly Grass) 


A fully hardy, drought-tolerant, deciduous, perennial ornamental grass forming a showy clump


Stems and leaves originate from a dense basal clump, forming a rose-pink to magenta, silky haze of flower heads during late-summer to mid-autumn (flowering time typically 6-8 weeks)


Seed heads look attractive over winter, so for a year-round display, cut seed heads back just before spring


Please note: full germination instructions are printed on each pack
