USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

24-36" tall x 24-36" wide. Even without the drifting blooms, 'Pink Cloud' Muhly Grass commands attention in the garden. Growing in a dense clump, the long, narrow green foliage flows with fountain-like effect through the garden. Leaf blade color turns buff to copper in autumn as floral plumes rise high above the foliage, creating the namesake cloud-like effect. Don’t let all that glimmers fool you: few plants are as rugged as 'Pink Cloud' Muhly Grass. Give them your toughest growing conditions, from sea spray to poor soils. Muhlenbergia thrives on hot, dry sites and is drought tolerant once established. Plants are deer resistant, making Muhlenbergia an ideal addition to meadow plantings and other naturalized areas, commonly used to stabilize slopes or as a low hedge. A spectacular  selection of a tough North American native grass.
