Seep Muhly (Muhlenbergia reverchonii)

Seep Muhly (Muhlenbergia reverchonii)

This distinctive native bunchgrass is widespread from Central Texas north into Oklahoma. Seep Muhly is found on steep, rocky slopes in full sun and is incredibly ornamental in all seasons. In the Spring, thin, fluorescent green leaves poke through the swirling purple/gray spiral haze of last year's growth. By early Summer, the new leaves begin to curl, and by late Summer, the plant assumes a ball-like form 8-10" high. In Fall, a diffuse, light purple inflorescence appears up to 12" above the sphere. As the seed matures, the whole plant takes on a purple/gray cast.

Seep Muhly is great for mass plantings, prairie restoration, and use as a border. The plant is deer resistant, incredibly durable and tolerant of everything but deep shade
