Muhlenbergia_Bamboo300

Muhlenbergia dumosa is a warm season grass native to Southern Arizona and NW Mexico. This grass has fern-like leaves and a lacy texture giving it a Bamboo look, hence the common name. The growth habit is upward to slightly arching, this one is non-invasive because it is a clumper and does not seed well. Bamboo Muhly will tolerate some drought but it will look its best on a moist well-drained soil. This Muhly flowers in the spring, but the flowers are not ornamental like others in this genus. This is an excellent grass to use as a backdrop, a specimen, or in a container.
