Bul Muhly

Best time to catch "Bull muhly" is early morning or afternoon in the fall or winter, when the low sun highlights the prominent seed heads. It's a signature native grass of upland areas in Far West Texas. Botanists call it Muhlenbergia emersleyi. This stand of muhly is in Madera Canyon, west of Fort Davis.
