All Gold Japanese Forest Grass


Hakonechloa macra 'All Gold'

 A slow growing, spreading grass with an upright, arching habit and foliage that ranges from bright gold to chartreuse.  Foliage is brighter gold in more sunlight and becomes more chartreuse with more shade.  An excellent choice for shade gardens and woodland gardens.  Naturally deer resistant,its graceful cascading silhouette, the All Gold makes a perfect ground cover, is great for mass plantings, borders and containers.  Hostas and ferns make good companions as they all have similar requirements.  In 2009, the All Gold won Plant of the Year from the PPA and no wonder, as its bright, glowing color will continue to create color in your garden from spring throughout the summer, moving from green to light pink, to tan.
