Muhlenbergia capillaris should be listed in any grass book and it is also listed in my western garden book. We cut it to the ground in February and it comes right back

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Another great application for grasses is in a waterfall type of planting. Planting similar plants with lots of movement cascading down a hill creates a beautiful effect.
Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Pink Muhly Grass
Pink muhly grows in the foreground of this garden. The mounding green growth characterizes the plant when it's not in bloom.
