How To Care

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 after it’s established. After establishing, it is extremely 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 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.

Dead Looking

So when I received the grass I immediately inboxed it, took it out looked brown and dead and several pieces were broken so I had to trim it. After watering it now has some new green growth but we'll have to see. Hoping it is not as dead and broken as it looks.

Hi Nick! These grasses are currently dormant at the moment. They will flush back out in spring or earlier depending on your location.

Cotton Candy Pink Muhly Grass

The item was received looking quite weary. Grass was mostly brown with no color to flowers at all. I watered it right after I received it, I planted it the next day. It has only been planted for 2 days. I am hoping for great results by next fall.

Pink grass

Presently has no bloom on it. It had a long trip on the truck, from NC to the Canadian border/ Montana and then down to Oregon. A week without water or light. It was planted when it was received and we are hoping for the best outcome as it has potential to become a beautiful grass in our backyard waterfall we created.

Will continue to buy from here.

I have a house on an island with no bridge. I wondered how I could receive plants at my door step. Sure enough, it can be done. They were received in great condition. Very pleased.

My order was received in good shape in a timely manner. The Cotton Candy Pink Grass has been planted and we’ll see what happens in the summer when when the wispy blooms appear!
