Muhlenbergia capillaris is a tall grass native across the southeast, naturally found in dry open woodlands and rock outcrops. It grows best in full sun sites with soils that are dry to occasionally moist. It is drought tolerant. This grass has showy small pinkish purple flowers that bloom in the late summer and create an overall appearance of a pink haze above the grass. It is fairly resistant to deer. It can grow up to four feet tall, and provides cover for wildlife. The seeds are also eaten by birds in the fall. Muhlenbergia capillaris is an excellent specimen plant in a yard, rain garden, green roof, or any other dry landscape location.
