    Comments about High Country Gardens Muhlenbergia capillaris Regal Mist:

    I ordered 2 of this product, along with 2 "Prairie Blues" and 2 "Blonde Ambition" grasses this spring. They were all "sleeping" when they arrived but either this grass or the "Blonde Ambition" never woke up and still look like brittle yellow stems in the ground. The others have thrived and are doing great at the time of this review (August 2016). I'm giving three stars because I'm pretty certain the Blonde Ambition is the plant that didn't wake up, but am posting this review for both in the event I am remembering their arrival states incorrectly.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Muhlenbergia capillaris Regal Mist:

    They seemed like nice plants (very small ones), but they did not survive the winter. One or two showed signs of life, but they did not come out of dormancy.

    Having said that, certain grasses - especially those with red coloring seem to have a hard time surviving the cold. In Virginia we had a late cold snap that probably did not help. Purchasing the plant in the Springtime might work out much better.

    Q & A

    Suggested Companion Plants:

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
