I would like to know if I can buy this at a local Cincinnati area nursery. I have read conflicting reports about whether it can be grown in Zone 6.
Muhlenbergia capillaris is a touchy grass for Cincinnati. There are a few examples of it growing in our area but not for several years in a row. I would not recommend it unless you just wanted to play around with it and see how it does. For best success I would plant it in the spring, in full sun, and with excellent drainage, planted in well draining soil. Steve
I would like to know if I can buy this at a local South Africa nursery.
