    More About Bamboo Muhly Grass...

    If you're a fan of Pink or White Muhly, you're gonna love this soft-textured beauty. A feathery, chartreuse cloud in the garden, it looks so soft you won't be able to pass by it without running your hands through it's delicate foliage. Unlike it's flowering cousins, it doesn't produce the showy fall blooms. However, you may notice masses of small flowers at the tips of the foliage when the grass is in bloom, at which time the plants take on a pinkish cast. But it's the soft billowy foliage that gives the landscape a totally unique look. Upon closeup observation you'll think this Muhly is a miniature bamboo, hence the name...but it's not a bamboo. With a name like bamboo, you might think it's an invasive spreader like some of the running bamboo. However, Bamboo Muhly is a clumping ornamental grass that spreads slowly from underground stems. Though it grows 4 to 6 feet in high and wide, it never becomes invasive. Grow it in the ground or in containers, whick allows northern gardeners above USDA Zone 8a to overwinter it indoors.


    IMPORTANT! - Do not cut back lower than 8 inches above ground in late winter.
