Bunny Tails Lagurus Ovatus

                            Bunny Tails Lagurus Ovatus

This is a Charming looking grass . What a Beauty!

An elegant fountain of ornamental grass with lots of landscape possibilities.

Graceful at the front of the house, or plant among flowers for an informal look.

Fluffy seed heads add texture and visual appeal.

Beginning in early summer, it’s topped by chartreuse puffballs, about 2½ inches wide, They are soft, fluffy, and absolutely irresistible to touch — a big child-pleaser and a nice edging for a pathway.

As summer turns to fall, the bunny tails turn to rich tan and dry out beautifully on the plant. You can leave them there  they make spectacular winter accents, lasting until they catch the first heavy snowfall (or all season in mild climates).

Bunny Tails is a pleasure to grow, too, because it favors sandy soils that many other plants shun, and once it gets its roots established, it’s quite drought-tolerant.

Collect them for use  in a dried flower arrangements and crafts.

Grow in a sunny area conditions.

Bunny Tails reaches a height of 16 inches , that is with plume . It has a clumping habit.

Grown mostly as annual except Zones 8b-10a

My thoughts : I picked up a packet of seed and started this one , and the germination is outstanding. I am excited to see this grass when mature.

Happy Gardening
