Japanese Hakone Grass
Hakonechloa macra 'All Gold'
Together with its ornat, lush foliage and the cascading slender leaves, Hakone grass has instantly become a hot selling item in our store. Ranging from dense green, light gold, to a more airy variegated through the spring and summer, its foliage presents seasonal metallic-orange shades throughout the fall. Lovely fragile looking flowers appear in the middle of summer only adding to its illustrious artistic appeal. This ornamental grass has a multi-faceted seasonal interest and will complement nicely in a number of landscaping applications in zones 5-9. It can be planted on its own but does nicely with taller and more well kept, structured companion plants.
In warmer climates Hakone prefers well drained soil and deep shade.
