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 full sun  partial shade  shade lover

A study in urbane simplicity, this vivid green grass fashions lush mounds of flowing bamboo-like foliage. Hakonechloa macra has often been overlooked, though its faster growing habit has a lot to offer, enduring more sun, drought and cold than the variegated Hakones. Solidly colored blades offset striped, gold, bronze or broad-leafed plants to great effect, or meld with Buxus 'Blauer Heinz' for a meditative green-on-green composition.

Size: 12"–3' 0" high x 12"–3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.
