Cotton Candy Ornamental Grass

Cotton Candy Ornamental Grass

It's easy to see why home gardeners and landscapers adore Cotton Candy Grass (Muhlenbergia capillaris). This gorgeous ornamental grass, also known as Muhly Grass or sweetgrass, creates a pink cloud in the border in late summer. Cotton Candy Grass is easy to grow and has vibrant, pink airy flowers that add textural drama and movement to the garden. It looks spectacular when planted in groups in the garden or landscape. Tolerant of heat, humidity, drought and wet conditions, it's also a favorite for planting in rain gardens. Deer resistant.
