Plant Information

Bunny Tail Grass is one of the few annual plants that offer yearround beauty. Cut these for long-lasting texture in dried arrangements. Unlike many grasses, the heads of Bunny Tail Grass do not shatter (drop seed) with age, so cuttings last for months or years when dried properly. In the garden, plants perform best in a well-drained   soil and   hrive in sandy locations where other plants struggle. Give them plenty of sunshine and water to establish. Plants are drought tolerant once the roots take hold. Drainage is a must for this plant, so consider amending clay soil or growing in containers if garden drainage is poor. Perennial in zones 8-10, grow as an annual in all other zones.
