This Muhly grass 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 plant’s fall flowering makes it a very distinguishing ornamental grass addition to any landscape. In early spring, white flowering stalks shoot up before its pink flower form season color.
Masses of airy, open, loosely branched blooms (each to 12 inches long) in pink to purple-red colors hang above the dark green foliage in a lengthy fall bloom. Some may say it looks like cotton candy giving it the nickname of cotton candy grass! Tan seed head plumes continue to thrive all through winter on this grass.
