Pic of the Day--Sea Bunny

Postby Hank Zumach » Jun 22, 2007 10:15 am

Hi All--Sea Bunny is a variety that easily passes the 10 foot rule. It's attractive foliage has a distinct iridescent two toned quality that doesn't show on the photo. The plant is very bright in the first half of the season and becomes more subdued as the season wears on. I have had it since 1998, growing in a spot that might get an hour of direct sun in mid summer. It is another variety that is slow to develop but worth the wait. In its sixth year my plant measured 34x23, significantly taller than Zilis' listing of 30x14. While slugs are not a bad problem, the plant does benefit from protection.
