Bunny Tail Grass


Bunny grass is an ornamental annual grass. It has spiky inflorescences reminiscent of the furry cotton tails of rabbits. This Mediterranean native is also called hare’s tail grass or rabbit’s tail grass. Bunny grass is a small clumping grass with soft ivory to white oval flowers. They have a soft touchable texture that is irresistible to both little and big hands.

    I was fascinated with the light on these cute little grass heads, they were flowering all over the outback and they sneaked into so many photos, but I never knew their name.

      I saw them in Yosemite too – they certainly get around the world!
