Muhlenbergia dumosa is an attractive grass native to southern Arizona and northern Mexico. It resembles a delicate bamboo with its 4-6 feet tall, light, airy stems and bright-green foliage. During late fall and winter, the foliage tips are adorned with tiny flowers, giving the plant a pale pinkish-green hue. Despite being rhizomatous, it spreads slowly and can be easily managed. It thrives in full sun and requires occasional watering, as it is drought-tolerant but looks more lush with some water.

In its natural habitat, Muhlenbergia dumosa grows on rocky slopes, canyon ledges, and cliffs in oak-pine and thorn-scrub forests and open prairies. It can be found at elevations ranging from 2,000 to 6,000 feet in southern Arizona to southern Mexico, covering areas of south Baja California and Sonora to Jalisco and the Chihuahuan Desert region.
