Named in honor of G. H. E. Muhlenberg, a botanist who specialized in grasses, this large, varied genus includes some of the most visually stunning and enduring ornamental grasses for today’s landscape. Primarily native to arid range areas of the southern U.S. and Mexico, many Muhlenbergias boast not only arresting inflorescences and foliage, but an exceptional tolerance to heat, sun and drought, plus limited amounts of dappled shade each day, as long as the soil has sharp drainage.
Slender, smooth glossy green blades, which appear nearly identical to the species, cushion a spectacular long-lasting delicacy of finely branched vibrant pink panicles. Countless minute seed heads lend a dreamy soft-looking aspect, drawing plant aficionados as well as birds and floral arrangers. Assuming a dogged, drought-tolerant evergreen habit, ‘Pink Cloud’ is ideal for planting in sweeps, singularly or in containers.
