Mountain Muhly

(Muhlenbergia montana)

Mountain Muhly, a high-elevation, perennial grass, grows in dense tufts, commonly 10 to 25 cm (4 to 10 in.) across and up to 75 cm (30 in.) in. The leaves are mostly basal, wide and sometimes lax at the bottoms, but mostly narrow and rigid toward the ends. It is a very important forage plant throughout the ponderosa pine ranges of the central and southern Rocky Mountain areas. It may also be found on a few sites in the Pinon-juniper area of the western plateau and central plains areas. This species has good potential for use in range seeding mixtures and mine reclamation.

Because of the awns, the seed is considered chaffy and should be planted with a specially adapted drill.
