Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola'

Japanese Forest Grass

The graceful arching stems of this Japanese native spread slowly by rhizomes creating loose, cascading mounds reminding one of graceful bamboo, preferring cool, moist organic soil. At 14" the leaves are almost entirely a bright golden yellow with just a few very slender green stripes remaining. Cooling temperatures in autumn provide gorgeous tones of pink and red in the foliage. This is a striking color accent whether used as a groundcover or protected container plant as long as it has substantial shade during our eastern U.S. summers.
