More Details

The White Cloud Muhly Grass, scientifically known as Muhlenbergia capillaris 'White Cloud', is a striking ornamental grass celebrated for its billowy, white inflorescences that create a soft, cloud-like display in the garden. Unlike its pink-flowered counterparts, this variety stands out with its elegant white plumes that catch the light and move gracefully in the breeze from late summer through fall. Its fine-textured, green foliage forms a neat, clumping base that adds structure and interest even when not in bloom. Perfect for mass plantings, borders, or as a specimen plant, White Cloud Muhly Grass is a low-maintenance, drought-tolerant addition that brings a sense of serenity and beauty to any outdoor space.

Growth rate: Moderate growth rate; typically reaches 3-4 feet in height and width.

Please note: Images on our website depict plants and trees at full maturity to showcase their expected grown characteristics. These images are illustrative examples only and do not represent the size of plants or trees upon delivery.

Pruning: Cut back in late winter or early spring before new growth begins to remove old foliage and make way for fresh, vibrant growth.

Fertilization: Apply a light application of a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring to support healthy growth. Over-fertilization is unnecessary and can detract from its natural beauty.

Winter Protection: Generally hardy in its growing zones, but a light mulch can help protect the roots in the colder parts of its range.



Plant in spring or fall. Choose a location with full sun and well-draining soil. Dig a hole as wide and slightly deeper than the root ball. Gently place the grass in the hole, backfill with soil, and water thoroughly. Space plants about 2-3 feet apart to allow for their full spread. Mulching is optional but can help retain soil moisture and suppress weed growth.

Water regularly to establish a deep root system, then reduce frequency. 'White Cloud' is highly drought-tolerant once established, requiring minimal additional watering except in extremely dry conditions. Flourishes in full sun, requiring at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily to produce the most vigorous growth and abundant blooms.
