Planted in a raised bed around zinnias they still look like plain old grass. Maybe later in the season.

Owner Response: Thank you for taking the time to ask a question in your online review. Bunny Tails grass flowers appear 12-16 weeks from emerging, unless there is an abundance of nitrogen in the soil which favors leaf growth over flower. If your zinnias are flowering this probably isn't the issue, the plants just need more time. You can always reach out to us if you have questions. Happy gardening!

So, so soft!

I'm in love with this ornamental grass! The bunny tails take a while to come up but they're definitely worth the wait as I have so many popping up now! The texture of the leaves are incredibly soft and velvety and the bunny tails are so fluffy with sturdy stems. My kids love them too! I'm definitely planting these again next spring in containers mixed with flowers. Excellent germination rate, easy to grow, and hands down one of my favorites to grow from seed!

I planted these several times in my pollinator garden, and was so sad that they never grew. Well............it is because I kept PULLING them. Oops! They look like the weedy grass that tries to invade my garden beds when they first start growing. I only realized it because I missed one, and it got a cute little bunny tail on it. Palm to face! Now I let them grow and go to seed, and I have lots of cute little bunny tails throughout the bed.

I tried sowing this in peat pellets indoors under a grow light, indoors in a seed starting mix under a grow light as well as direct sowing outdoors, and didn't get any of them to germinate.

This grass is seriously the cutest thing in my garden this year. I cannot stop touching the blades, they are velvety soft. Very easy to start from seed indoors, transplanted very well in late spring.
