1 Gallon Pot Perennial - Hakonechloa 'All Gold'
Hakonechloa 'All Gold' (Japanese Forest Grass)
A brilliant grass that absolutely glows in the shade! It tends to be more chartreuse in heavier shade, and brighter gold in more sun.
Though this grass does spread by rhizomes, it is a slow grower and will not rapidly overtake its neighbours. 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.
Hakonechloa is grown mainly for its beautiful foliage, though it does produce seed heads. Tiny, inconspicuous reddish brown flower spiklets appear in airy clusters from late summer thru early fall.
Hardiness Zones: 5-9
Part Shade (4-6 hrs. Direct Sun)
