Wordless Wednesday – Bunny Tail Grass

How many people could resist putting a hand out to touch this little grass?

This is Bunny Tail grass (Lagurus ovatus). An easy-to-grow, annual little beauty. Seeds are easy to obtain (although its common name may vary) e.g. T&M call it Hare’s tail, Sarah Raven calls it Bunny’s tail, but you get the picture.

This clump of grass is growing in a pot I almost cleared of ‘weed’ seed in preparation for this year’s bedding. I am so glad that I left it!

And if you look closely at the tip, they are now beginning to flower: The flowers look like old-fashioned light filaments, glowing in the sunshine, suspended between the spikey fluff!

    I’m going to keep my eyes open for that bunny! I think it should be recognizable by the tail!

    Amazing how grass can be so beautiful. But is it as soft as a bunny’s tail? 🙂
