Super soft! Easy to grow! Fun to see what does actually look like a little bunny tail!

Where are the bunny tails?

3 out of 5 stars Aug 12, 2019
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!

So Cute!

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.

No germination

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.

SO soft!

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.

no tails

Planted the whole packet in medium sized containers, but never progressed further to grass. I suspect I may have better success planting in the ground? Oh well. Zinnia seeds I bought all germinated for a beautiful show!
Kimberly McNabb from NY
Owner Response: Hi Kimberly, There are a couple of things that could have happened here. It could have been a time issue, the plant needing more time to produce the flowers or if the soil was rich with nitrogen or fertilized with a nitrogen-rich fertilizer, plants will grow big and lush at the expense of flowering. We are always here to help troubleshoot issues, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Bunny Tails Grass Seed

I really was excited to try this. The grass grew and grew but no bunny tails . I really wanted those cute tails but just got grass. Sad...
Sharon Chapman from WA
Owner Response: Hi Sharon, We are sorry you didn't experience the cute tail-like flowers. We've got some tips for you if you want to try these again. Plants take time to mature and produce flowers and in shade, the time to maturity will be delayed. Be sure to grow these in full sun and also consider starting them indoors to give them more time to mature. Also, nitrogen-rich soil encourages leaf growth over flower formation, so be sure that your potting soil and/or fertilizer are not high in nitrogen but balanced. We hope these tips encourage you to try again. Happy gardening!

Bunny tails are finally sprouting!

After seedlings grew into tufts of grass, bunny tails shot up about a month later.

Cute little ornamental grass

I found this easy to germinate and no fuss in the garden. At the end of the season I cut it down and added to a dry flower arrangement. I loved it and plan to grow again next season.

My lovelies were down and transplanted into cell packs and were just transplanted outside. They actually withstood an unexpected light frost too, thank the Lord

Easy to grow, velvety soft!

It's June 29 2022 as I write this, and I just noticed little blossoms popping up! I started mine from seed, then distributed a little as decoration in my different container plants. It has done well wherever I put it, and I got a very high germination rate as well.

These were a bit hard to start but I did get a nice pot of really cute bunny tails! I will plant them again!
Lorelee from WA

Easy and unique

Started indoors, great germination and easy to transplant. Blooms galore in the full sun west garden. East garden with more shade less so. Planted with night and day snaps and can't wait for the color/texture display later this summer!
