Pink Muhly Grass (Muhlenbergia capillaris)

I love love love my Pink Muhly Grass. Once fall arrives it mystifies my garden with its pink seed clouds. It is in seed right at the same time that my Beautyberry has its berries. This year the Tassel Flowers (Emilia coccinea) are also in bloom. They contrast with the grass in a most jarring way. I always like gate crashers in the garden!
