A Dwarf Sport of the Popular 'Little Bunny'

Burgundy Bunny Fountain Grass is an accent plant for small space gardens or balconies. It grows exceptionally well in containers making it suitable for terraces and patios. Because it blooms continuously from spring to late fall, it makes it an ornamental addition to any outdoor area. Burgundy Bunny Fountain Grass requires about 2 years of cultivation to become established, but once it matures, it requires minimal care. It is also virtually disease free and never requires any pesticides to keep it healthy.

Burgundy Bunny Fountain Grass, a fountain grass, thrives in sunny locations and is heat and drought resistant. It tolerates poor soil and cold of the winter months. It requires occasional dividing to keep its decorative shape. The color of the grass changes throughout the season and the amount of sun it receives. The blooms resemble creamy "bunny tails," and the foliage alternates its hue from green to carmine red. The plant reaches its blooming peak in the fall with the height of 16 inches. The miniature size is retained throughout the life of the plant.

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

We purchased 6 plants which were shipped and planted in the fall last year - we live in zone 7 - unfortunately, 4 of 6 plants did not survive, for which we received a refund. The 2 survivors are very pretty and doing well.
