Hakonechloa macra 'All Gold'

Japanese Forest Grass

Wow! As named, the foliage is completely golden and has a metallic, almost luminous quality. Bright yellow foliage glows in the shade garden and lends fabulous texture. Particularly beautiful when combined with dark foliaged neighbors, grown near water features and flowing from containers. Habit is somewhat more upright and spiky than other forest grasses. We have found it to be quick to establish and wonderfully vigorous. (This is my favorite Hak.)

Hakonechloa macra 'Naomi'

Japanese Forest Grass

Excellent fall color sets this new gorgeous forest grass apart from H. 'Aureola'. The creamy yellow and green variegated leaves become flushed with reddish-purple tones in fall. The color is most pronounced in cool weather. Tiny, inconspicuous reddish brown flower spiklets appear in airy clusters from late summer thru mid-fall. Though this grass does spread by stolens, it is a slow grower and will not rapidly overtake its neighbors. Plant it where it can cascade down slopes, drape over rocks, crawl over the edges of walls, at the front of the garden, or even in containers. An elegant, easy shade groundcover.
