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 ‘Beni-kaze’ (G-0497)
With the same pendent elegance as its relatives, ‘Beni-kaze’ entertains brilliant red fall color. A verdant mound of draped loosely arranged blades remains green until cooler weather ignites the smooth foliar ribbons and begs its name, which translates to “red wind.” Lounging in the late season shadows, this larger growing Hakonechloa echoes the warm-hued fanfare of autumnal foliage.
Size: 18" – 20" high x 2' 0" – 2-1/2' wide.
Hardy to zone 6.
