Looking for fall and winter interest when the rest of the landscape is hibernating? Consider Muhlenbergia capillaris ‘White Cloud.’ A medium-sized ornamental grass that grows 3-4’ tall by 2-4’ wide, White Cloud Muhly has fine (capillaris means ‘hair-like’), blue-green foliage that easily sways in the breeze. In the winter, masses of airy, open inflorescences rise above the leaves, creating the illusion of clouds. Found in grasslands and woodlands from the northeast to the south, ‘White Cloud’ wants full sun and regular water, though it can be drought tolerant. Cold hardy to below 10° F, deer tolerant, and adaptable to seaside conditions, use Muhlenbergia capillaris ‘White Cloud’ in traditional and contemporary landscapes.
