In Austin, Gulf Muhly gets all the love, and for good reason. The waves of fuchsia seed heads are our best attempt at fall color. They are planted in groupings all around town, and you can’t help but take notice.
A few years ago, I purchased several Gulf Muhlys, and picked up a Big Muhly at the same time. This is an absolutely stunning grass as well, and shouldn’t be forgotten for its more popular sibling.
