Muhlenbergia capillaris - Gulf Muhly, Purple Muhly

Landscape Picture 1
Landscape Picture 2


Absolutely one of the most beautiful ornamental grasses around. A North American native and more importantly a Texas Native Plant! Mostly found in the pine flat woods, coastal uplands, and beach dunes. Gulf Muhly has blue/green needle like foliage, giving it a stiff upright growth habit, and can get up to 3-4' in height with a 2-3 foot spread. The fall is when Muhlenbergia capillaris puts on a real show with flowers that look like a purple cloud from far away, giving a spectacular fall color show. This grass is also great because it needs very little care, Gulf Muhly will grow in drought conditions as well as wet conditions (the best of both worlds!). Muhlenbergia capillaris is part of our Plants For Texas® Program, meaning it was Texas Grown, Tested in Texas to perform outstanding for Texas Gardens.
