Hakonechloa ‘Beni Kaze’ is a Japanese forest grass which forms a dense mound of short wide green blades providing an excellent low ground cover in shade, whilst also being stunning in a large pot in a shady spot. Plant in multiples for effect or to soften borders or edges. The tips of the leaves turn red in the summer and the whole leaf turns red and purple shades in autumn. Deciduous, but leave the flowers on for added winter interest. Hardiness zone H7. Pot size 1.5 litre.
Care & Maintenance.
Cut back hard in early spring to make room for new growth and is also a good time to divide established plants.
