Muhlenbergia capillaris is another US native (Massachusetts to Texas), ornamental, deer-resistant grass that will knock your horticultural socks off! Hairy awn muhly makes a nondescript clump of narrow green foliage (30" x 30") until mid- to late August, when the clumps are topped with cloud-like heads of reddish purple...truly STUNNING!
