Muhly Grass, also known as Purple Muhly, is a herbaceous ornamental grass with delicate purple flowers blooming in the fall, covering much of the foliage. While native to pine flatwoods and coastal areas, it can be thrive in many warmer regions of the country. Muhly is very adaptive and virtually maintenance free, which makes this grass a great addition to landscapes and roadsides. It reaches a mature height of 3 feet and width of 6 feet. USDA ZONES: Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9, Zone 10, Zone 11.
Most PlantMeGreen trees can be shipped and planted any time of year, unless the variety is specified as only seasonal delivery. Packages are typically shipped within 7-10 days from the time of your order. You will receive a tracking email upon confirmation of your PlantMeGreen purchase. On some occasions, severe weather and other unusual issues can delay shipping and delivery of your PlantMeGreen package. Delivery time cannot be guaranteed, if a package needs to arrive prior to a specific date, or at a more convenient time for you, please notate that upon placement of your order.
Muhly grass can be planted year-round in Zones 7-11, and during the spring or summer elsewhere. First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space you will need. Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system. Once it is in place, backfill the hole with native soil (a sandy soil is preferred) and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, plant your seedlings per the instructions included in your PlantMeGreen package.
Muhly grass can turn brown in the winter. Cutting the clump back to the ground in the spring before new growth takes place is only recommended maintenance along with watering, which this grass needs plenty of, even though it is drought tolerant.
