Bamboo Muhly Grass

Bamboo Muhly Grass

Muhlenbergia dumosa

Bamboo muhly provides a totally unique look for the garden. Its chartreuse, very fine-textured foliage creates a soft, billowy appearance, providing a wonderful foil for bold succulents and cacti. Compared to the other muhly grasses, its flowers are insignificant. Bamboo muhly spreads slowly from underground stems, eventually forming a clump to 4-5 feet tall and wide. It is adapted to a wide range of soils. In hot, dry deserts it appreciates moderate to ample summer irrigation.
