Light airy stems, 4-6’ tall, dressed in light green foliage wave and dance in the breeze. Clumps of fluffy green clouds are 3’- 4’ wide and resemble a wispy bamboo! In fall winter, lavender pink hued flowers on tips give it a new look. Living garden art, both architectural and dynamic...mass in the background in warm climates or feature as a fine specimen in a pot in colder areas (easily cut back and over wintered indoors).

Info

Noted for its extraordinary fine texture and striking resemblance to bamboo, this warm season grass conveys a lighthearted grace. Delicately branched, upright and arching supple stems and thin light green leaves define the billowy mass that forms a noninvasive clump, preferring occasional water while enduring deer, heat and drought. Stirring in just about any breeze, the evergreen Bamboo Muhly hails from Arizona and southern Mexico, produces insignificant pale pink flowers and is destined to become an airy counterpoint to Yucca 'Garland's Gold's bold blades or where winter's are cold, an ethereal container subject.

Info

Grossly underplanted in our opinion, this handsome muhly forms delicate thickets of fine-textured foliage and is strongly reminiscent of bamboo. The leaves and flower clusters are held on slender, woody stems to 6' and possess a graceful, billowing habit. Useful as an accent, in containers or as a feathery screen between perennial beds, bamboo muhly grows best in well-drained, fertile soil. Plants are surprisingly heat and drought tolerant. Southern Arizona, Northern Mexico.
