CA Native
Grass + Grasslike
As a hard-working CA Native grass, Muhlenbergia rigens provides attractive textural contrast in a landscape with many erect narrow blades that fan out of the vase-shaped foliage in dense clumps. Leaves can reach up to 3′ long. It’s one of the most beautiful and easiest to grow of all the native California bunch-grasses. It prefers sandy or gravelly soil but will perform well in almost any well-drained location.

“When regionally appropriate California native grasses—including Muhlenbergia rigens—are combined with colorful perennials, the result is a shimmering, mini-ecosystem that’s friendly to all life. Even better, it requires minimal water, care, or other limited resources.”
