    More About Little Bunny Fountain Grass...

    Little Bunny is a truly miniature fountain grass reaching only 18 inches tall when in bloom. Cute cream-colored, tufted seed heads look like a bunch of little bunnies' tails dancing above the dense clump of dark green foliage. The blooms begin to appear in midsummer.

    Little Bunny Dwarf  Fountain Grass is often used for its radiating, fine-textured effect in the landscape, especially beautiful when the late Summer breezes sway its inflorescences. Small garden spaces lend themselves well to this dwarf fountain grass. One to three plants are effective in small gardens as an accent, and in larger areas, mass plantings are stunning. This grass adds structure to the winter garden as well as seed for birds.

    Dwarf fountain grass prefers full sun in evenly moist, well-drained soils, but will adapt to poor soils with occasional drought. Siting in partial shade will result in decreased vigor and virtually no flowering. Occasional deep watering is needed during drought to keep foliage from rolling and twisting; it is common to see tips turn brown during drought. Shear dead portions back to 3 inches above ground by late March (use gloves when handling the serrated foliage) to allow new growth to emerge.

    Like many of the grasses, there are virtually no disease or pest problems with Little Bunny Dwarf Fountain Grass. A trouble-free and reliable garden plant!
