The Muhlenbergia genus is a member of the Poaceae family and native to the southern United States and Mexico.
As it is not often available in catalogues, we are delighted to be able to offer it to you on brittanyperennials.uk
We chose the Muhlenbergia capillaris species for three (good) reasons:
- A clean and tidy tuft, which is evergreen in winter.
- great resistance to heat and passing drought. No need to water!
- A most spectacular late summer flowering of pink clouds
Height of the inflorescences: 90 cm. Grow in the sun in ordinary soil, which can be poor and dry. Soil drainage will improve its chances of survival through damp winters or in heavy soil. Planting distance: 80 cm. Hardiness: -10 °C to - 15° C.
In the garden, we like to plant Muhlenbergia capillaris with the late summer 'must haves' in order to provide a contrast with its diaphanous inflorescences: Sedum 'Autumn Joy', Sedum x Matrona, Sedum spectabile 'Carmen', Sedum spectabile 'Brillant', Perovskia, Phlomis, Echinacea, Aster, Salvia microphylla.
Muhlenbergia capillaris is also a choice grass for grand urban landscapes: no watering and good quality flowers.
