Hakonechloa macra ‘All Gold’


Japanese Forest Grass

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 8.190.100


One of the most gorgeous of ornamental grasses, also one of the few that prefers shady sites. This makes a dwarf mound of narrow golden-yellow leaves with more of a spiky habit compared to other forms. Tiny green flowers are hidden among the leaves. Slow to grow, but eventually makes a wonderful edging. Combines beautifully with Hostas or ferns, since all have similar requirements. Mature clumps may be divided in early spring, but be sure to make the divisions large for best success. Needs afternoon shade but morning sun brings out the best colour.
