Muhlenbergia emersleyi 'El Toro'-Bull Grass

     Bull Grass is native to rocky slopes in oak woodlands from Arizona to Texas. El Toro™ was collected in southeastern Arizona, where it grows in dense colonies. This blue-green grass is smaller and more dense than Deer grass (Muhlenbergia rigens), growing to about 2-3 feet tall and wide. In the fall months it sends up loose, dark purple flower spikes. El Toro™ is very drought tolerant, and grows equally well in full sun or part shade. It is hardy to 0° F. USDA Zone 7.
