I couldn't find these in my local nurseries but have been planning to put these in the front yard and just couldn't wait around. I love the purple color and the airy shape and texture, and it is native to my area. I'm going to plant these in front of the house in lieu of the traditional, dense and oversized foundation plants we removed. These pink muhlies will bring a much more modern look to the house.

Cotton candy is blooming all over Atlanta metro now and is beautiful. I will plant among Pretoria canna near the street. I think the variegated leaf of Pretoria and the pink will be spectacular!

I chose Cotton Candy Pink Grass because of its size and beauty.
Kay L on Nov 1, 2016
Because of its impressive look and for the reason it only gets 2-3 feet tall!
Plus it was the pop of color I needed in a certain location in my landscape.

I'm looking for height, variety, and statement pieces for my garden. The pink muhly grass will make an exceptional addition.
Jennifer R on Jul 30, 2016
I have an area that receives full sun, and summers can get quite hot in Eastern PA. This plant is reputed to withstand that and to survive dry conditions. It is also appropriate for my zone (6a) where winters can get cold. A beautiful option that meets all the requirements.

should this plant be planted in spring or fall?
A shopper on Aug 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can plant this Pink Muhly grass any time of the year as long as the temperatures aren't extreme. In a zone 6 I would lean toward spring, summer or early fall to ensure it is established before winter. The other growing zones for this plant are warmer so you don't need to worry about this as much.

A shopper on Jul 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Pink Muhly grass blooms in Fall.

How far apart do I plant pink muhly grass?
A shopper on Nov 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: they spread out up to 2 1/2 feet and drape down beautifully- I would recommend you allow them an area of 3 full feet in circumference. I actually placed several of them individually to spread out the pops of fall color in my front landscape beds. I chose not to bunch them together for limited space too.
will this plant live thru the winter?
sharon b on Oct 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sharon is correct. They go dormant and flush back out in spring. As long as you are in the appropriate growing zones(6-9) they will come back every year.
Does this pink grass come back every year or is it just good for one season ?
A shopper on Sep 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they come back every year. You can trim them back in early spring just before they come out of dormancy.
How many months will the bloom last in zone 9?
Tony D on Oct 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I got these plants in April and planted them right away. They grew well and didn't bloom until September. It's now the end of October and they are still in full bloom. But I live in Cincinnati,which is zone 6.
How big is 1 gallon and 3 gallons of plant?
A shopper on Sep 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Currently the 1G is about 2 feet and the 3G is 2-3 feet, but about 3 times larger in width. The height will vary throughout the year as they will always be dormant/cut back in winter/spring.

A shopper on Oct 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, and they look great in clusters!
Will this grass tolerate high acidic soil?
Cindy T on Oct 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is pretty darn tolerant. I know it prefers neutral, but can tolerate basic and acidic soil. I would be hesitant about "high acidic" though. Maybe just try 1 small one to start?
Is it good in Michigan? Perennial? We're can I buy it in flint area?

Planting & Care

How to Plant & Care for Your new Cotton Candy Pink Grass

When planting your Cotton Candy Pink Muhly Grass choose the best location for this plant to thrive.  Be sure to plant this grass in growing zones 6 to 9.  This grass grows best in full sun to part shade.  Muhly Grass is extremely adaptable to a variety of soil.

Water deeply once or twice weekly when newly planted (about 3 months) to help the roots grow properly.  After establishing Pink Muhly Grass is extrememly drought tolerant and only rarely needs water.  Water thoroughly in extreme heat, especially in the first summer.  Fertilize with a slow release, balanced fertilizer in spring for optimal growth. Prune back Cottom Candy Pink Grass to about 4-6 inches in late winter or early spring before new growth emerges for a clean start.  However, pruning is not necessary.  

Muhly grass is extremely hardy as well as pest and disease resistant.  It is also deer, rabbit, pollution, flood, and salt tolerant.

Planting Instructions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.  

 

Planting a shrub digging the hole

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 2 - 3 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.
