Okay Kay here goes. The scientific name would be Muhlenbergia filipes.
Other common names include Muhley Grass among others. If you need more
information you can contact Dr. Bob Dufault. He is located at the
Clemson University Coastal Research Center in Charleston, SC. Sorry I
do nor have his number handy. I have done some work with him and he is
very knowledgeable about the dune grasses.

Hope this helps,


Hi Gary!

Thank you for the honorable mention. Just saw this today.

Sweet grass may mean Muhlenbergia filipes. They prefer full sun in well drained soil. They do not like to be grown closely with other shrubs or perennials. Plant sweetgrass to the same depth as in the container they are growing. Winter or early spring is best.
