Plant Description

‘Fast Forward’ is a new variety of pink muhly grass that blooms significantly earlier than the species, as early as August, and extends on into winter. Clumps of very narrow deep green leaves are topped with glowing pink, airy flowers on spreading 4 foot stems. Grow muhly grass in full sun and dry, well-drained soil. Plant when the soil is warm. Muhly grass is stunning in masses especially when back lit. Even the beige seed plumes are attractive in winter. Unusual companions to consider are aromatic aster, gray-headed coneflower, ‘Iron Butterflies’ ironweed, and limestone fameflower.
