More Information

Description 'Little Bunny' Fountain Grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides) has everything you love about fountain grass, but in a compact habit! Dark green foliage forms a dense clump of arching leaves. Its green fountain of foliage transitions to a rich gold hue in fall and continues to add lovely texture well into winter, making this grass a multi-season stunner. By midsummer, creamy white flowers spikes accompany the foliage, making excellent cut flowers! It loves full sun and readily tolerates drought, as well as occasionally wet soil. Plus, it's low maintenance and resists damage from deer and rabbits, too, making it perfect for gardeners of any skill level. Details Botanical name: Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Little Bunny'
Common name: Dwarf fountain grass
Zone: 5-9
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun)
Height x width: 20" X 24"
Flower color: White
Foliage color: Green
Season of Interest: Year-round.
Uses: Accent, alpine and rock, container gardening, edging, erosion control or embankment, ground cover, massing, ornamental, rock garden, slopes, small spaces, underplanting.
How To Grow Soil: Easily grown in average, medium to wet soil
Light: Full sun to part-sun. Best in full sun. Tolerates part sun, but may not flower in too much shade.
Water: Medium. Once established, will adapt to poorer soils with occasional drought. Occasional deep watering is needed during periods of drought in summer to keep the foliage from rolling and twisting, and it is common to see the tips of the foliage turn brown during these times.
Spacing: 18 - 24 inches
Fertilizing: Small amounts of fertilizer are needed for ornamental grasses. Too much fertilizer will increase the nitrogen level and that can lead to lodging or flopping over. The best time for applying fertilizer is in the spring, just as growth is resuming. About one -quarter cup, per item, of a 10-10-10 slow release fertilizer is enough to take care of the plant needs throughout the entire summer.  For best results, make sure you thoroughly water in the fertilizer.
Winterizing: Can leave foliage standing for winter. Shear the dead portions back to 3-4 inches above the ground by late March to allow the new growth to emerge unhindered.
Maintenance & Pruning: About every 3-4 years, propagate by dividing the clump into several pieces in early spring (after shearing the dead foliage away) and discard the center of the clump (and any other peripheral portions which have died).

SO GLAD I BOUGHT LITTLE BUNNY

I was very impressed with the packaging of Little Bunny Fountain Grass when they arrived. All plants were very healthy. The following day I planted them, against the enclosed planting/care instructions that came with the plants. It was hot weather so I allowed them only very early morning sun, then I covered them with large styrofoam cones which I purchased a few years ago in the fall at Menards. The cones came with holes in the top for ventilation, put having bought similar cones 45 years ago for roses, the instructions on those cones said to poke three 1/2" holes around the side near the top. So there was plenty of ventilation for Little Bunny. They thrived extremely well and look absolutely beautiful. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase and will definitely order from Great Garden Plants again when the need arises.

I won’t be buying “buy one get one again”!

I bought several grasses on buy one get one sale. Each Bunny grass had just a few green stems, one had more than the other, both are dead.

It lives!

Since I’m planting perennials in the fall this year, it’s too early to tell, But it seems to be growing & Little Bunny Fou-Fou has not yet gobbled it up! Always a plus.

future orders. Plants arrived in good condition. Can’t wait to see them blossom next year.
