M. rigens, commonly known as “deergrass,” is a perennial bunchgrass that reaches up to 5 feet in height. Deergrass can be found along gravelly or sandy canyon bottoms or washes, often in moist soil, at elevations ranging from 3,000–8,500 ft’. The densely clumped stems can be seen in bloom July–October.
