Muhlenbergia dubia (Pine Muhly)

Muhlenbergia dubia
Pine Muhly

This little known grass is a perfect petite alternative to Deer Grass (Muhlenbergia rigens) or Big Muhly (Muhlenbergia lindheimeri) when space is limited. The green leaves are stiff and upright, providing the tidy formal look of Big Muhly, while the flowers are narrow tan rods similar to those of Deer Grass. It would be a great choice for mass planting in medians with site visibility restrictions or narrow planting areas where space is limited. Also consider using it to soften plantings of agaves and yuccas. Native to Arizona, New Mexico, west Texas and northern Mexico, this grass is drought tolerant and needs good drainage.
