Deer Grass, Muhlenbergia rigens, is actually a deer resistant ornamental species. It is named for its mounding form that is dense enough to hide baby fawns in the North American wild. In a residential or commercial landscape it provides beautiful tufts of arching blades. Near fall, cream flower heads surface and turn to tan as the season advances. Deer Grass, Muhlenbergia rigens has extensive roots and is an excellent selection for xeriscaping and erosion control. Its pronounced form makes it an exquisite border or accent plant.

Plants Arrived in Great Condition and Very Well Packaged

I purchased plants from four different online websites and, hands down, the ones I received from the Greenhouse were the most healthy and well packaged. It's been a week since they have been planted and, so far, they look like they're doing okay.

Deer grass and mexican feather grass got here on time and in good condition

Fast and in good condition.

My order came to me promptly and in good condition. I was a little concerned about so root structure coming out from the bottom of the pot, but no damage happened to the plant and it seems to be thriving well. Thanks!
