Hare's Tail (Lagurus ovatus)
Ornamental grass grown for its furry soft, white oval “bunny tail” plumes atop light green, grass-like arching foliage. Also known as Rabbit Tail Grass and Bunny Tail Grass. It loves the sun and is heat and drought tolerant once established.
Excellent cut flowers for fresh or dried arrangements. Wonderful if used as a border or along a walkway, and they are most showy when planted in groups.
Allow soil to dry between thorough waterings. Water freely in dry weather.
Light, sandy soil with excellent drainage.
