Figure 4: Characteristic Muhlenbergia sericea habitat on front barrier (Top: Dewee's Island) and back barrier (Bottom: Apron Island) islands in Charleston County, South Carolina. This species can occur in the interdunal troughs between the established dune communities, areas without significant woody vegetation, and in the ecotone between the salt marsh community and maritime forest. The typical flowering period for Muhlenbergia sericea along the South Carolina coast is from the middle of October through November. (Photo by Danny J. Gustafson)
