Bush Muhly

(Muhlenbergia porteri)

 Bush Muhly is a highly palatable, warm-season grass, native to the southwestern United States. In New Mexico, it is found mainly in the gravelly washes and on dry hillsides of the southern desert area; then, mainly in protection of bushes. It has long trailing stems that remain green through most of the winter, if temperatures are not too severe. Because of its palatability, drought resistance, and ability to survive and grow in some of the toughest sites in the Southwest, authorities feel that the plant might be severely overgrazed. Use of this plant in the future should not be ruled out, particularly following brush eradication on creosote brush infested sites. (For the present, it is not recommended for range seeding.)
