Hakonechloa macra ‘Nicolas’


Japanese Forest Grass

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 8.190.170


One of the most gorgeous of ornamental grasses, also one of the few that prefers shady sites. Excellent fall color sets this apart from other varieties. Green leaves become flushed with orange and red tones in cooler autumn weather. Make use of its arching habit by planting this where it can cascade over walls, rocks or even the edge of containers. A well-behaved slow grower that will not overtake its neighbours. USPP#19898: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
