Description :

One of the most beautiful ornamental grasses

Muhlenbergia lindheimeri is native to rocky hillsides in Mexico and Texas and owes its name to German-American botanist Jacob Ferdinand Lindheimer (1801-1879). It grows in slender clumps with semi-evergreen, bluish-grey foliage.

In late summer it produces purplish-grey, feathery, linear inflorescences like those of Calamagrostis acutiflora 'Karl Foerster', and gives verticality to a mixed-border.

Muhlenbergia lindheimeri can be used as edging or at the back of a border, as a curtain to structure a space; or to create a romantic atmosphere.

In a contemporary garden, we would plant it en masse in the front of a bed with a 90 cm planting distance. The dried inflorescences remain attractive in the winter.

Grow in the sun in ordinary, light, well-drained soil, which can be poor and dry. Can cope with chalky soil.
