Muhlenbergia dumosa is an attractive and unusual grass that features wispy stems and fine foliage that move freely in the wind. As a native to Arizona and northern Mexico, it resembles fine bamboo. The bright-green foliage and airy stems reach 4-6′ tall and are populate with dense, small, lavender flowers in fall. It prefers full sun with occasional water and is summer-dry tolerant. As a slowly spreading out-of-the-ordinary grass, it is appropriate for use rocky grades, under oaks and open, full sun landscapes.
