Photo: Hakone Grass 'All Gold'

General description

This perrenial ornamental grass is brilliantly colored and glows in the shade. It spreads slowly to form a clump of semi-upright, gold to chartreuse foliage. Morning sun draws out the gold coloring. Reddish brown flowers. One of the best grasses for shaded areas. Creates a pivotal accent point in any garden.

Plant requirements

Part shade to full shade. Water regularly to keep from drying out.

Maintenance

Much easier to care for than lawn grass. Adapts to most soil types. Keep well-watered during hot weather. Cut back in early spring as new growth appears.
