Plants, Plants, Plants

I was thinking of building this hill cave for my bunnies in their outdoor enclosure. I was going to get a huge terra cotta plant pot and put it on its side and push it into the dirt a little and then put dirt on top and around it to make a small hill/mound. I don't want to plant grass on the hill this late in the summer, and I was thinking of putting a plant on top or on the side of the hill so the dirt doesn't roll down the hill when the buns hop on it and try digging. Does anyone know what kind of plants or bushes to plant? Preferably bushes or plants that would come back in the spring and are bunny friendly, since I really don't want to kill my pets. I've checked all three of my rabbit books but I can't seem to find a list of good and bad plants. Any help would be appreciated!!!

Here's some info for you, and a link:http://www.rabbit.org/chapters/san-d...poisonous.html

I'm not sure about good plants, but here are some bad ones...I hope this helps!

"It is difficult to create a list of poisonous plants. While some plants are outright toxic to anyone who eats or comes in contact with the plant (Jimson Weed, nightshade), others may cause a reaction in some but not in others.
The following is a listing of plants normally thought to be poisonous. The list is not complete. People should not eat plants not grown as food crops. Children should be taught never to eat non-food crop plants.And you should restrict your pets' access to questionable plants.
Poisonous plants vary between animals. Don't assume that since a bird, squirrel or pig ate a plant with no problems, others (human or rabbit) can do the same.
Unless otherwise stated, consider all parts of the plant poisonous.
Never hesitate to seek medical aid if you think a person or animal has ingested a poisonous substance."

I know, thats a long list! The thing is that they are going to chew or eat anything you plant. It probably won't last very long! I wish I had more advice but I'll let you know if I come up with anything!

I bought the terra cotta planter today, it's really big! Tomorrow we're gonna bury part of it so they have a level plane to sit on, and I'm just gonna put grass on it, and I'll grow it in a container and then put it on the mound when it's fully grown, to make things easier on the buns.
