Bright Pink Plumes Rise in Early Fall to Explode in Color & Texture

This dwarf pink Muhly grass shrub cultivar is as unique as it is breathtaking! In the autumn, it creates an incredible display of billowy, vibrant pink ‘hairgrass’ that will add a playful yet sophisticated look to your garden.

This North Carolina native plant’s fall flowering makes it a very distinguishing ornamental grass addition to any landscape. In the early spring growing season, white flowering stalks shoot up before its pink flowers form season color.

Masses of airy, open, loosely branched blooms (each to 12 inches long) in purple-red to pink colors hang above the dark green foliage in lengthy fall bloom. Some may say it looks like cotton candy pink grass giving it the nickname of cotton candy grass! Tan seed head plumes continue to thrive all through winter on this grass.

Does Dwarf Pink Muhly Grass Come Back Every Year?

Yes, your dwarf pink Muhly grass will regrow every year when the climate is right. Pink Muhly grass is a perennial plant, meaning that it will grow back nearly indefinitely as long as it is well taken care of. 

Does Dwarf Pink Muhly Grass Need Full Sun?

Traditionally, pink Muhly grass thrives in full sun. However, if you’re in an especially warm climate, some shade is good for the plant as well.  This warm season plant doesn’t like wet conditions so be sure to plant in a well-drained soil site.

Loving my Muhly Grass

I put this in a new bed in July in south Texas. So far so good. I am watering daily, going to 3 times a week soon. The plant arrived healthy and is surviving brutal heat.

We're thrilled that the plant arrived healthy and is toughing it out in the brutal heat. Keep up the great work, and may your plant continue to thrive and bring you joy in your garden! Best, Shirley
