Description :

Seep Muhly, a cloud of purple-red vapour

Muhlenbergia reverchonii is a perennial bunch grass native to the southern United States (Oklahoma, Texas). It is hardier than most of the other Muhlenbergia species, which fare better in maritime or Mediterranean climates.

Muhlenbergia reverchonii is a hardy evergreen with a cespitous (*) tuft. It is also a good ornamental plant with mid-summer inflorescences that look rather like a purple-red vaporous cloud (**).

In a rock garden, planted in gravelly and/or sandy soil, we like to combine it with other varieties that can also thrive in hot, dry conditions.

- Perennials: Agastache, Sedum, Lavandula, Santolina, Ruta graveolens, Salvia microphylla.

- Grasses with bluish foliage: Festuca glauca 'Cool as Ice’, Sesleria, Helictotrichon.

Grow in the sun in ordinary, predominantly sandy, slightly acid to alkaline soil, which can be poor and dry, but well-drained in winter. Height: 80 cm. Hardiness: -15°C


- cut back the clump at the end of winter. May re-seed.

(*) A cespitous (cespitose) plant has many stems from the same root, usually forming a close thick clump or tuft.

(**) The species is smaller than M. capillaris and has less intense colouring. Conversely, it is more tolerant to the cold and to less favourable soil conditions.
