Muhlenbergia X 'Pink Flamingo'

Pink Flamingo

Plantsman John Fairey spied this progeny of Muhlenbergia capillaris and Muhlenbergia lindheimeri in his gardens near Hempstead, Texas. This hybrid combines the best of both parents, with the strong vertical form of Lindheimer muhly and the pink flowers of Gulf muhly. A narrow, upright clump of thin blue-green leaves is topped in the fall with dramatic arching plumes of soft pink flowers, reminiscent of headdresses worn by Vegas showgirls. This grass is ideal for use in narrow spaces and in mass plantings. It is heat, cold and drought tolerant, and resistant to deer grazing.
