The grass in this photo with the feathery, deep pink hue is a 'Muhlenbergia capillaris' (common name: gulf muhly). It can be purchased at your local nursery if it does well in your climate. thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Pink Muhly Grass
How to use it. Pink muhly's fine texture is an effective landscape softener. Note how attractively pink muhly highlights the sculptural agave in this landscape by D-Crain Design and Construction.Pink muhly grass is native to the East Coast of the United States, so many native plantings incorporate it into prairies, savannas and coastal dunes. Planted en masse, pink muhly blurs where this garden inside the fence ends and that of the outside begins, bridging maintained and wild landscapes.
