White Cloud Muhly Grass
Muhlenbergia capillaris 'White Cloud'
This densely mounding, finely textured grass grows well in a sandy, well drained soil.
Beautiful plumes - late summer to fall color lasts 6-8 weeks. The white plumes seen at a distance is created by airy flower heads.
We do not recommend planting ornamental grasses in the Autumn if you can avoid it. They prefer to have a bit longer to establish their root system. It's best to plant in Spring or Summer.
Once established it needs little care. * Deer Seldom Browse *
