Pink Plumes

We have been in a drought here in North Carolina.

I have had to water to keep most plants alive.

My Muhly grass did not need me.

This lovely Florida native is drought tolerant.

Its pink plumes add much needed color in October.

For my Lutheran readers, Muhly is short for Muhlenberg.

It is named after a Lutheran minister/ botanist Henry Ludwig Muehlenberg from the early 1800’s.

Muhly grass is a super star, rain or shine, in October.

  1. Our Gulf muhly, Muhlenbergia capillaris, is one of my favorite plants. Alas, I can’t grow it, I just don’t have enough full sun in my garden, so I enjoy others’ plantings. Your photos are gorgeous!
