Muhlenbergia rigens, or Deergrass, is a perennial bunchgrass that reaches up to 5 ft in height. Deegrass can be found along gravelly or sandy canyon bottoms or washes, often in moist soil, at elevations ranging from 3000–8500 ft. The densely clumped stems can be seen in bloom July–October. Transplants well preferring sandy soils adjacent to or in areas that receive periodic flooding, or provide periodic deep watering for best growth.
