Hairawn muhly (Muhlenbergia capillaris) belongs to the Poaceae (the Grass family). It is an evergreen herb that is native to eastern North America. This herb grows in dry open woods and savanna, and up to a height of 90-120 cm. It grows in clumps, but do not spread through above-ground or underground stems. The leaves are flat linear but are often involute with the edges rolled up toward the midrib, green in summer, but they morph during the fall to produce a more copper color. In late summer or early fall, airy pinkish panicles rise above the foliage. The panicles consist of many single-flowered spikelets supported on slender hair-like pedicels.
