I love growing unusual and interesting things and am teaching my son to love it too. I have a tiny mostly potted garden in Newcastle NSW.

Look at all that pollen!!! Most of the tails have been long this year (more like possum tails) but this plant still has the little cute puffs. Def save seeds from this one!

Wow, this is really very nice. Does it seed and grow easily?

@Yollymac yes. I collected a lot of the seed to grow this year but I did notice a few popping up in my lawn! Lol

Ohh. I may not Wishlist it then, I don’t know that it would go well if it spreads to our hay!

How long does it take to grow from seed? Is it a hardy plant?

@gel these are about 6 months old. The packet says perennial but @nej said his were annual. It's a wait and see!! 😊

@latebloomer @leisel check out @nej bunny tail... the flowers look just like fluffy little bunny tails! ☺ Nej did your's look like this when they were small? Kind of like winter grass?

That's great @KathyB but save the seeds just in case. My ones didn't turn out to be perennial, unless I did something wrong. I hope you have better luck than me

@nej I think the original seed I had said annual?? So maybe this is a second variety? I'll make sure to post comparison pics! ☺

comment

The ones I had were Mr fothergills too. I think they were the same ones but I just treated them as annual. If you look after them well you will probably have more success.

These are a great annual grass I grew them one year and they looked fabulous. Great value. If you want to see how they will turn out, I have a photo in my plants list @brightcolours @hazec @KathyB

@nej I did a GT search (and saw yours') before I bought the seed 😉 They were so nice I couldn't resist!

Yes they are a nice grass but you have to replant every year @KathyB

@nej Thanks for the headsup. I'll be sure to collect the seeds! 😊
