Bunnytail Grass

Bunnytail Grass Bunnytail Grass Bunnytail Grass
Lagurus ovatus. Adorable. That just about sums up this little Grass. Its tidy clumps of upright blades yield stems of irresistibly touchable, ivory flowers that look exactly like, well, bunny tails. The blooms can be enjoyed for weeks in place, and then cut either fresh or dried to add to diminutive arrangements. Bunnytail Grass is perfectly suited to container plantings, too, and is oh-so-easy to grow. Direct-sow seeds in spring or start individual pots indoors, 6 to 8 weeks earlier. Annual. Summer-blooming. Height: 12" to 16".

Average seed life: 2 to 3 years.

Seeds are best direct-sown in mid-spring and thinned to 12" apart. If starting indoors, sow into individual pots 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost date. Cover the seeds lightly and keep them moist until germination. Harden off the seedlings by slowly introducing them to the outdoors over the span of a week, and then carefully transplant them, disturbing the roots as little as possible, to 12" apart in full sun and welldraining soil after all danger of frost has passed. Ornamental grass is relatively drought-tolerant once established. To dry the blooms, cut stems, tie them into bundles, and hang them upside down in a dry, dark spot for several weeks. Annual. Summer flowering.
