Pink Muhly Grass

Muhlenbergia capillaris

Native to the eastern U.S., an evergreen clumping grass made up of slender, dark green leaf blades. During late summer through fall, finely-textured, airy flower heads form a ruby-pink cloud that rests slightly above the foliage, giving the grass a pink halo effect. When planted en masse, flower heads shroud the foliage in a magnificent, gauzy haze.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
