Named in honor of G. H. E. Muhlenberg, a botanist who specialized in grasses, this large, varied genus includes some of the most visually stunning and enduring ornamental grasses for today’s landscape.
Primarily native to arid range areas of the southern U.S. and Mexico, many Muhlenbergias boast not only arresting inflorescences and foliage, but an exceptional tolerance to heat, sun and drought, providing the soil is well drained, as well as abiding short amounts of dappled shade each day.
In an illuminated departure from the native species, the finely branched nearly transparent panicles spawn a white wispy haze along the upper reaches of sleek, dark green blades. With cloudlike inflorescences that brighten the landscape well after the first frosts, this tidy clumping Muhly is both stunning and stalwart and can be utilized as a specimen.
Blooms September – early December.
Size: 3' 0" high x 3' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 6.
