Photohunt: Fuzzy: Bunny tails


This plants or beach grass have a fuzzy touch which looks like the tail of a bunny rabbit. It is called bunny tail aka Lagurus ovatus

They grow on New Zealand beaches, and I once picked them in Grey Mouth. These ones are in Whatipu.

Florists like to use this as a dry flower.

Hi Ann, They do look like bunny tails, or as Ginny said, cotton balls... I have never seen them before. Thanks for sharing.

Bunny tails seem to be a very appropriate name for these plants.

Bunny Tails also grow here in WI, USA, in the summertime along the roadsides where it's sandy. I have a dried wreath made of them at the cabin. Isn't nature a mystery.
