The spectacular pink, purple fluorescense appears in October and November.  They remain throughout the winter, but are not as showy as these two months.
Muhly Grass, Muhlenbergia capillaris


Muhly grass does well in all conditions.  They can be seen growing next to sea oat grass in sand dunes along the beach.  Here they grow near silver buttonwood at Siesta key.
A mass planting of muhly grass flourishes across from Sarasota Airport.  It is frequently used in Florida native plantings.
Add a small cluster of muhly grass in the landscape for a change in foliage and color.
