Grasses Add Softness to Phoenix Xeriscapes

Muhlenbergia capillaris (Pink Muhly)

If your xeriscape has a hard edge to it with lots of rocks, cactus, and other structural-looking stuff, add some grasses. Grasses soften up a hard look and, on a breezy day, provide billowy movement.

Pink Muhly planted en masse adds a splash of color in the fall when everything else seems to be going dormant. I took this (not very good) photo at the Desert Botanical Garden so you can kinda see the spectacular effect of multiple plants in a line.

Be sure to check out the grasses we have here…all excellent choices for Phoenix xeriscapes.  We’ll be adding more very soon!
