Hakonechloa macra ‘Aureola’ is a very attractive and popular grass which is slow growing and has rich yellow leaves with a narrow green stripe. Red tints develop in autumn. Fantastic in containers with a lovely cascading habit but equally as good in a shady border or on the edge of woodland. Remains fairly evergreen and enjoys a moist soil. If placed in a sunny spot the leaves will go a much brighter yellow and may burn. Originally found on the island of Honshu, Japan. Lovely for variegation in a shady spot. The flowers are insignificant and best removed. Hardiness rating; H7. Pot size 1.5 litre.
Care & Maintenance.
Cut to the ground in spring, which is also the best time to divide established clumps. Cut stems can be composted or used as a mulch.
