Hakonechloa macra ‘Naomi’

Japanese Forest Grass

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 8.190.160

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 and creamy yellow striped leaves become flushed with plum 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#19897: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
