Burgundy Bunny Dwarf Fountain Grass with Vibrant Red Fall Color

  • Fluffy Seed Heads
  • Burgundy Fall Color
  • Compact and Easy to Maintain

It's not often you can refer to a grass as "cute" or "adorable, but Burgundy Bunny Grass (Pennisetum 'Burgundy Bunny') is just that--darling! This dwarf fountain grass is as absolutely adorable as it is riveting.

Burgundy Bunny Grass begins to take off in late spring to early summer. It darts upward in an attractive fountain shape. Its long, narrow blade standing upright, just barely arching outward. The outermost leaves gracefully kiss the ground, creating a stunning plume of sweet foliage.

This cutie offers a bit more excitement than many kinds of grass out there. Once mid to late summer hits, you can expect a show of fluffy silver flower spikes. These delightful plumes climb and dance. As its leaves turn from bright green to deep red in fall, these lovely flower spikes really pop! If you're looking for a nice addition to your flower arrangements, these flower spikes are just the ticket.

The Burgundy Bunny Grass's leaves transform from tip to base, slowly taking on more and more red. This gives you ample time to enjoy its bi-color glory, and once fully burgundy, this grass is all drama.

The neat and sweet grass variety forms a compact, dense clump that doesn't grow too tall. This makes it a great border with color, contrast, and three seasons of interest. It also adds color and texture as a container plant and looks lovely when planted en masse.

Keep your Burgundy Bunny Grass by trimming it in winter if needed and dividing in spring. It thrives in full sun or partial shade and most soil types. This Dwarf Fountain Grass should be cut to the ground each year in late winter or early spring before it starts to grow, and can be divided if the clump gets too large at that time. Full sun is best for this little heat lover.

Don't want to commit to adopting a bunny? Try some Burgundy Bunny Grass instead. It is sure to make you smile and it won't nibble on the veggies in your garden. Order now!
