The cutest grass out there!
Bunny grass is a small clumping grass with soft ivory to white oval flowers.
They have a soft touchable texture that is irresistible to both little and big hands. The blades are a soft green color and 1 to 2 feet long. Unlike many ornamental grasses, hare’s tail grass has thin bendable foliage.
Ornamental bunny tail grass can be grown in most USDA zones in the United States, but it does best in the southern states in zones 8-11. This is a warm season grass but performs well in summer in cooler zones. The plant sprouts readily from seed and baby grasses can be thinned to give the stronger plants room to grow. Sow seeds in full sun for best vigor, but established plants can grow well in partial shade too. The plant favors sandy soil but will also thrive in loam. Grow patches of bunny tail grass by loosening the soil and digging in a layer of compost to help with drainage. If your soil includes a lot of clay, consider mixing in some sand. Rake the top of the bed smooth and sprinkle the seeds on top. Cover the seeds with a sprinkling of soil and press the soil down with your hands. You can also grow them inside in flats and then transplant them when the seedlings have formed a clump. Space the plants 12 inches apart for a sea of waving soft puffy flowers. In addition to sowing by seed, bunny tail grass can also be propagated by division. Dig up the plant in late winter to very early spring. Cut the root ball in half, ensuring that the plant has several healthy blades. Replant the new grasses and keep them well moistened until they mature.
