Bunny Tail Grass Plants

Bunny Tail Grass is a low growing variety, perfect for the front of a cutting garden. The soft, fluffy blooms are irresistible to kids (and anyone with fingers). The plumes emerge bright chartreuse and age to an ivory buff color. They can be left to dry on the plant for winter interest.

Ornamental grass gives your garden an ethereal quality when the light filters through it. The plumes dry out for a golden winter interest, or you can harvest and dry them.

Includes three young plants, grown in 2.5” diameter pots.

Growing Info
How to Plant Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water
Where to Plant Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, with well-draining soil
When to Plant Plant outside in the late spring, once the soil has warmed up. Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon
When to Expect Blooms Plumes, really, but all summer
Care Instructions Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells
Extra Credit Looks lovely in dried bouquets. To dry the grass, wait until the pollen sheds, and then hang in a cool dark room
