Rabbits are the new mice. Not that I used to eat mice (too many bones), but every time I have a chance to order rabbit at a restaurant I do it. Payback’s a …. anyway.
So the rabbits have decimated my new garden, annoyingly. Hordes of them. An entire rabbit colony has taken up residence in the long grass left by the last owners (thanks for that). They have snipped the new hostas, deadheaded the lilies (pre-bloom) and pruned the new viburnum. As in they snipped it off at ground level.
It would be one thing if they were eating it, as the mice do, but nope- I think they just get a savage pleasure of sharpening their teeth on my viburnum.
So, as with all things, here’s my

List of plants Rabbits LIKE:

I’m sure we’ll find out more as the season progresses.
I should note that I hate all things rabbit, but when I found a warren of baby bunnies in the front lawn, I didn’t mow over it. Damn bunnies are so cute. And as with a lot of cute things: super-frustrating.
