A Little Background on Lagurus Ovatus aka Bunny Tails

Bunny grass is a small grass with soft ivory to white oval flowers. The soft touchable texture is irresistible to both big and little hands. Although being a Mediterranean species, the Bunny plants have naturalized throughout much of the world.



They are Bunnies After All

Fun fact: those fluffy species are considered invasive in some places due to their adaptability to various climates and how easy they reproduce. Go figure; they are bunnies, after all!
