Q.Gulf Muhly Grass Recently Planted In TX In Full Sun Light Planter Boxes. Why Has It Started Turning Brown? Is This A Bad Sign?
I planted 7 Gulf/Pink Muhly grass plants in tall planter boxes in direct central texas sunlight. These have been planted for about a month now and are turning a light brown color and the green is going away. What is the cause of this? We try to water heavily but may miss a day or two throughout the week.
