Hakonechloa Aureola

$15.95

Selected as the 2009 Perennial Plant of the Year. 
Also known as Japanese Forest Grass.  One of the most gorgeous of ornamental grasses, also one of the few that prefers shady sites. This forms a low mound of arching stems, with cascading layers of narrow leaves striped with bright yellow and green. The graceful effect is similar to a dwarf bamboo but without any invasive tendencies. Clumps are slow to grow, but eventually makes a spectacular border edging. Combines beautifully with Hosta or ferns, since all have similar requirements. Mature clumps may be divided in early spring, but be sure to make the divisions large for best success.  Does better with some moisture – so amend area with compost when planting.  It is a slow grower but worth the wait.  Zone 5
