Lindheimer’s muhly is a soft textured species with narrow semi-evergreen leaves that are medium green in color and provide a soft and relaxed character in garden settings. It is native to Texas and Mexico and, like other muhly grasses, has proven to be highly adaptable to garden conditions. Foliage grows 2-3 ft. tall; flower panicles can reach 5 ft. high.
Lindheimer’s muhly is a large clumping species distinguished by its green leaves and soft texture. Its flower panicles are plume-like and are more spectacular than Deer grass, M. rigens, resulting in a more pronounced floral display. Foliage and panicles fade to pale green and blond colors in late fall; cut back to the base in late fall through early winter to prepare for the upcoming spring growth cycle. A good border plant, in parkways and on banks and slopes to contrast with flowering perennials and shrubs.
