Little Bunny Dwarf Fountain Grass
Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Little Bunny'
|Description||The most dwarf of the fountain grasses with fluffy, buff-colored blooms. Terrific contrast for use in rock gardens, borders, foundation plantings, or in perennial beds. Foliage turns golden russet in fall. Adds interest and texture to containers. Drought tolerant when established.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Late summer through fall|
|Mature Size||Slowly reaches 10 to 12 in. tall and wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container|
|Design Ideas||Now small gardens and courtyards can enjoy the beautiful fountain-like flowers of Fountain Grass. Plant as an accent with mixed perennials. Ideal for dry stream beds and around rocks in natural or wild gardens. Perfect next to water gardens, where it won't overwhelm the scheme. Grow in distressed cast iron, bronze or copper containers on porch, patio, balcony or perched on low walls.|
|Companion Plants||Blanket Flower (Gaillardia); Tickseed (Coreopsis); Yarrow (Achillea); Sedum (Sedum); Salvia (Salvia)|
|Care||Thrives in average, well-drained soils; avoid heavy, wet clay soils. Water deeply and regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Cut foliage back just before new shoots appear in late winter to early spring.|
