Plant Description

What a wonderful plant for light shade. Hakonechloa forms graceful mounds of bright green stripes to about 1 1/2' tall. It resembles lush, lime green waterfalls suitable for brightening any dark garden corner. Give it moist, well-drained soil where it will slowly spread. Heads up, this is the Perennial Plant Associations Plant of the Year for 2009. Plant this elegant grass with autumn fern, Heuchera ‘Citronelle’, and ‘Jeepers Creepers’ foamflower.
