Hakonechloa

These graceful members of the Poaceae family are named after Hakone, a region of Japan where they can be found growing wild in shady areas with humus-rich soil.

Hakonechloa macra ‘Aureola’ partial shade  shade lover

This cool season dwarf grass is lush and courtly. Cascading, satin-like foliage is broad and variegated with cream, chartreuse and green, illuminating dark garden corners and softening hard features. Appreciative of moist well-drained soil, ‘Aureola’ makes a choice specimen or slow spreading ground cover. We especially enjoy it in Japanese gardens as well as under the ambient light of Corylopsis spicata.

Size: 15" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 6.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
