Muhlenbergia reverchonii ‘Undaunted ™’
at Digging Dog

Ruby Muhly



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.

Though the species is indigenous to the limestone outcroppings of northern Texas and southwestern Oklahoma, this exceptional seed strain was collected near Fort Worth, Texas by Lauren Springer and Scott Ogden, and subsequently introduced by Colorado’s Plant Select program. A small growing warm season grass, Muhlenbergia reverchonii’s fine hewn green blades craft a long-lived dense tussock beneath the spectacular late season aura of gauzy reddish mauve inflorescences that appear earlier and are less pink than Muhlenbergia capillaris. The namesake pretty much sums it up–a compact tailored habit performing heroically in cold, drought, heavy clay, sweltering heat and southern humidity. Easy care, warm tawny brown winter interest and an exceptional en masse presence make it indispensable.

Size: 2' 0"–3' 0" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Customer Comment:

“Thank you for your continued great service and excellent plants.... all the plants arrived in perfect condition. Healthy, and ready to bloom...the primrose produced a beautiful flower, just two weeks after arrival! We have always been impressed with the careful packaging, size and hardiness of your plant stock. We ordered Alstroemeria many years ago that have flowered every year, and are more beautiful with time. Thanks again!”
