Fluffy Red & White Bunny Tails!

Red Bunny Tails is just as much fun to grow as the name implies! The delightful blooms begin as a dramatic burgundy/red, transitioning to fluffy puffs of white atop the slender grass. Although named "bunny tails", the blooms are more reminiscent of a rabbit's foot, with a longer, showier display. The blooms start their show in mid-summer and continue right on into fall. The vibrant, green grass grows in a clumping manner, rising up tall and straight with a gentle arch that provides dramatic appeal as it gracefully sways on the afternoon breeze.

Red Bunny Tails has an upright, arching nature. Red Bunny Tails is adaptive to a variety of soils and thrives in full sun locations. Plant a few for an impressive border, use one as a specimen or even place one in a large container.

Red Bunny Tails serves as an annual or perennial depending upon your conditions, increasing its versatility.
