Ornamental Grass - Bunny's Tails Lagurus Ovatus

This is an interesting dwarf ornamental grass for bedding, decorative or cutting use. The flower heads are silvery on short slender stems and reach the height of 20cm.

Sow outdoors from March to May or August to October, where they are to flower, 0.5cm (¼") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Thin seedlings to 15cm (6") apart. Water well until plants are established. For a continuous display, make sowings at two to three-week intervals. Sowings made in curves, rather than straight lines, often create a more pleasing effect. Late summer and autumn sowings will flower the following year, often earlier than spring sowings. Flowers: June-September.
Sow indoors, January-April, to flower the same year, 0.5cm (¼") deep, in a tray of compost. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Transplant them, 5cm (2") apart, to other trays when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into well-drained soil, May-October, 45cm (18") apart, when frosts are over. Or, sow outdoors to flower the following year, April-June, in a seed bed, 0.5cm (¼") deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 5cm (2") apart, before planting out to flowering positions in autumn, spacing 45cm (18") apart. Flowers: July-October.
