Muhlenbergia

(Gramineae - grass family)
Over 125 species of chiefly perennial grasses of N. and S. America and eastern Asia, with a concentration of species in Mexico and the southwestern U.S. Muhlenbergias (or "muhlys") have only recently begun to be used as horticultural subjects, but a number of the species are worthy of cultivation as ornamentals.

purple hairgrass


ornamental grass, dry - moist, sun - part shade
e and cent US

An outstanding ornamental, this clumping grass in late summer or early autumn bears delicate, airy, light purple flower plumes which appear to hover like clouds above the foliage. Prefers sandy or rocky soil, full sun, and good drainage. Moderately tolerant of shade and drought but blooms much more heartily with some moisture and lots of sun.
