A Little Bunny Gardeners Can Love

August and September usher in a different, subtler kind of beauty in Minnesota. In perfect synchronization with that change, Pennisetum "Little Bunny" is an ornamental grass that starts to shine as its inflorescences fill out into full, perky seedheads that catch the dew in the morning and dance gaily in the breeze. This little gem reaches about 18" high by 18" wide and prefers well-drained but not dry soil in a sunny or mostly sunny location.
