Muhly grass grows in clumps that are 3 to 4 feet tall. It is native to Florida and the eastern half of the United States. The grass is known for its pink to purple inflorescences which float above the body of the plant in an airy display worthy of a fairy princess. The show of color gives it the name pink muhly grass. There is also a white flowering variety. The plant has long sharp-edged foliage blades and can reach 3 feet in width. Known for its extreme drought tolerance, growing muhly grass is easy and requires little maintenance or upkeep.
