Plant Families / Hakonechloa - Hakone Grasses
Celebrated for the beauty of its foliage, Hakone Grass (Hakonechloa macra) is a long-lived, tough, ornamental grass that does wonders in moist shady conditions. Native to Japan, its foliage forms attractive, loose cascading mounds of gracefully arching, slender leaves that ripple in the slightest breeze. Ranging from solid green, to bright gold to creamy variegated throughout the spring and summer, the soft foliage changes to exquisite copper-orange shades in the fall as cooler weather sets in. Invaluable for adding multi-season interest, color and texture to the shade garden, Hakone Grass is easy to grow, resilient to pests and diseases and requires little maintenance.
