Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola'


Availability : Available

Description :

Hakonechloa macra is a species endemic to the damp, rocky cliffs of the island of Honshu (Japan) and is considered to be one of the best grasses for partial shade beds or growing in pots.

Over the years it forms gracious, cascading tufts 30 to 60 cm high.

Given its origins, we need to note its preference for 1) a damp environment, 2) humus-rich, stony soil and 3) the cold!

Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola' looks like a superb fountain with its gracefully arching bright yellow, green-striped leaves.

Height: 35 cm. Spread: 50 cm.

It grows more slowly than green-leaved grasses, but works perfectly in a container or on the edge of a shady bed or in damp undergrowth near trees.

Grow in fertile, humus-rich, moist and well-drained soil. Cold, north-facing exposure.

For sunnier or warmer exposures, it is better to choose the faster growing cultivar Hakonechloa macra 'Albostriata'.
