If you’re looking for an ornamental edging plant for your annual flower beds, take a look at bunny tail grass. Bunny grass is an ornamental annual grass. It has spiky inflorescences reminiscent of the furry cotton tails of rabbits. This Mediterranean native is also called hare’s tail grass or rabbit’s tail grass.
Growing ornamental bunny tail grass from seed is easy, as also to add a little whimsy to containers, borders and annual gardens.
Ornamental bunny tail grass can be grown in most zones, but it does best in warmer climate 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.
