A beautiful new Japanese Forest Grass that represents an important Canadian contribution to temperate gardens everywhere. This stunning form of Hakonechloa macra is a sport selected from the popular cultivar ‘All Gold’ and boasts vibrant, cascading, chartreuse leaves that with more sun become intense golden yellow, randomly highlighted in deep crimson.

This neat, strong-growing grass has a compact habit and forms an upright mound with graceful cascading foliage.
