Hakonechloa macra ‘All Gold’ Japanese Forest Grass
One of the most gorgeous of ornamental grasses, also one of the few that prefers shady sites. 'All Gold' Japanese Forest Grass makes a dwarf mound of narrow golden-yellow leaves with more of a spiky habit than other forms of Japenese Forest grass. Slow to grow, but worth the wait as it makes a wonderful edging. Combines beautifully with Hostas 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. Needs afternoon shade but morning sun brings out the best colour.
