Pro Tips

  1. A haircut in late winter or early spring and some food in spring will keep your grass in amazing shape. But your Pink Muhly will be just fine if you forget about it. Pamper it a little though and you are sure to have the best growth and blooms. Whether you are a low maintenance or no maintenance plant person, Pink Muhly Grass will look great in your landscape!
  2. We do recommend a thick coat of mulch prior to winter for our growing zone 6 customers. Apply at least 2 inches of mulch extending a few inches beyond the rootzone for best results. This will protect you grass during the coldest temperatures.

How To Care

When planting your Pink Muhly Grass choose the best location for this plant to thrive. This grass is recommended for growing zones 6 to 9. It grows and flowers best in full sun, but tolerates part shade, especially in zones 8 and 9. Muhly Grass is extremely adaptable to a variety of soil.

Water deeply about twice weekly for the first 2 to 3 months after planting. 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 balanced, slow release 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.

Pink Muhly grass is extremely hardy. It is pollution, flood, and salt tolerant as well as deer, insect and disease resistant.
