Sorry we are now closed for the season. We will be spending this time working on the gardens, inventory, firming up spring ordering from our growers and then the website. Our plan is to return the shopping cart in Feb/Mar for 6-8 weeks so you can reserve your plants to pickup when they are ready as well as your gardens in May/June. Please note we will not be adding all the plants available - so always way more to see when you drop by. Season 25 tentative Hours: Thursday to Sunday 10-4 early May to June 29th, 2022

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
