Wondering about the word "Muhly"? The Muhlenbergia genus is named after Henry Muhlenberg (1753-1815) who was an accomplished botanist, chemist and mineralogist. Muhlenberg is also claimed by many to be America’s first outstanding botanist. Now you know. ;)
Muhlenbergia (also called sweetgrass) is used in the low-country of South Carolina for traditional basket weaving. Now you know more. ;)
Pink Muhly Grass is best grouped or massed for late season color. Add this gorgeous perennial grass to borders, cottage gardens or native plant areas. It's also a great for mass coverage of areas with poor soils.
