Muhly grass has a native range that extends from Kansas to Massachusetts and south to Florida. In natural conditions muhly grass grows as a solitary plant or in dense stands. It is traditionally found in wet prairies, savannas, the outer edge of marshes, and well-drained upland pine forests. On the coast it is often found in inter-dune swales. This plant can tolerate a variety of soil types and moisture conditions.Muhly grass works well in poor soils as a groundcover and can be used to prevent soil erosion. Muhly grass is tolerant of salt spray and poor soils typical of coastal settings. Once established, this extremely low maintenance grass works well in roadside and median plantings; it is also widely used in golf course landscaping as well as meadow and rain gardens.Although some Muhlenbergia species and cultivars are more tolerant of wet conditions than others, sites with good drainage are preferred. Most rain garden soils have been amended and provide adequate drainage. Muhly grass requires supplemental irrigation when planted, but is very drought tolerant once established. Although drought tolerant, muhly grass will look better and flower more profusely with periodic supplemental irrigation during periods of drought. Muhly grass is a clumping species and should be periodically divided during the spring or early summer to renew vigor. In addition, before new growth begins in early spring, it is recommended to cut foliage back to the ground.
