Muhly Grass: A Field Guide

Muhlenbergia is a favorite of garden designers; this family of ornamental grasses comes into its own after other perennials have peaked, creating swaths of color in autumn landscapes.

Hardy M. capillaris—in shades of white or pink—is a dramatic backdrop for greenery. M. dubia (pine muhly) is a dense, upright grass with narrow spikes turning golden in the fall. Muhly’s wispy, fine foliage works well en masse in meadowlands, borders, and native gardens. Muhlenbergia is not picky about soil, water, or heat, and after it gets established will thrive in dry climes.
