Muhlenbergia capillaris 'White Cloud'
White Muhley Grass
Muhley Grass is a distinctive ornamental wiry upright bunch grass with beautiful reddish plumes up to about 3 feet tall. It blooms in late summer and fall. 'White Cloud' is a rare form similar to the normal pink plume Muhlenbergia capillaris but with beautiful white plumes which show up well against a dark background or mixed with the normal pink form. This selection from near Jacksonville, FL was introduced by our friends at Superior Trees and is a choice ornamental grass for sunny bed or border. It is native to southeastern U.S. In the coastal area of South Carolina the famous sweetgrass baskets traditionally made by African-American women are crafted from the wiry leaves of Muhlenbergia.
