Plant of the Week: Muhlenbergia capillaris or hairy awn muhly is a clumping, deciduous grass to four feet tall by two feet wide with masses of violet-pink, airy flowers that often obscure the blue-green foliage in a purple haze from summer to early fall. Useful as a border specimen, or massed in large groups, this species is especially suitable for coastal gardens in sandy soils. Plants will tolerate partial shade and dry conditions, though flower production is much stronger in full sun and plants often look best with moderate summer water. Hardy to 10F. Muhlenbergia capillaris is available this week in one gallon containers.
