How high rabbit fence?

I had a new bush put in a couple weeks ago and the nursery told me I should put some chicken wire around it this winter to keep the rabbits from nibbling at it. I was wondering how high that should be? I see Home Depot has chicken wire in 2 ft, 3 ft, and higher. Is 2 ft high enough? Thanks....

Encircle the base with a 12 inch - 24 inch width of 1 inch mesh
chicken wire or welded wire. If you get more than 18" of snow, wider width will be needed. Leave wire in place all year.
