Hakonechloa ‘All Gold’

Hakonechloa 'All Gold'

(Hakone Grass) Hakonechloa ‘All Gold’ is a new dwarf form of Japanese forest grass that creates an appealing bright spot in the shady or woodland garden. The bamboo-like leaves are bright gold in part sun and more chartreuse in full shade. In the cooler days of Autumn, the leaves have a reddish inflorescence. The gracefully arching foliage is slightly more upright than the more common Hakonechloa ‘Aureola‘. Prefers fertile, moist, well-drained soil. ‘All Gold’ looks spectacular with blue-leaved hostas!
