Deer Muhly (Muhlenbergia rigens)
Although occasionally found on the Edward's Plateau, this bunchgrass is common from West Texas to California. It is similar to Lindheimer Muhly but proportionally smaller. Deer Muhly also has leaves that are decidedly more blue green in color and a bit more arching.The inflorescence is a silver spike that forms in the Fall.
Deer Muhly is great in mass plantings, as a border, or in narrow strips such as the area between driveways.
Deer Muhly is deer resistant.
