Bamboo Muhly Grass

This grass has fern-like leaves and a lacy texture giving it a bamboo look. Growth habit is upward to slightly arching. Non-invasive; clump form. Will tolerate some drought, but it will look its best in well-drained soil. Bamboo muhly does not spread aggressively like its namesake. Rather it grows slowly outward from a central clump. Its only downside for use in central Texas is that sustained deep freezes can injure it, turning it the color of straw and possibly even killing it. Despite that risk, it’s considered hardy to around ten degrees.
