Planting Tip for Muhly Grass

Plant pink muhly grass in any type of soil, as long as it drains well. Muhly does not like wet feet. It is naturally found along highways, in flat forests and along coastal dunes. When mass planting, space at least 2 feet apart for a dramatic effect. The lighting should be as bright and sunny as you can manage. This grass thrives on cruel neglect. It tolerates rocky soil where there is little organic matter and merciless sun and dryness. It can even tolerate flooding for short periods.

Planting Tips

  • First, always make sure to pick a planting area that is best for the plants growth needs. (ie. soil conditions, drainage, sun exposure and moisture requirements
  • Because roots need room to grow, make sure to always dig a hole the same size deep as the plants root ball and twice as wide
  • Also make sure the plants root ball is even or just above the areas ground level because you don't want to plant too deeply
  • Backfill with the remaining soil and any added mixture like compost, black cow or even regular potting soil
  • Water in the plant well because this will help remove any air pockets that may remain after back-filling.
  • In addition, watering will depend on the type of plant that you planted.
  • Most, but not all, will need a regular water schedule to ensure the growth of a mature root system. if you like in an area with high rainfall, do not over water.
  • Finally, mulching is recommended to deter weeds and keep the moisture content high, also to keep temperatures low.
