Description

'All Gold' Japanese forest grass (Hakonechloa macra) will glow in your shade garden with bright, golden foliage. Slender leaves arch as they grow, forming a graceful cascading mound. With ample moisture and light, leaves will stay attractive from spring through fall.

This ornamental grass requires little maintenance and is resistant to pests, diseases, and deer, making it super easy to grow! There are so many design opportunities with this golden grass. Try planting it with darker leaf heucheras, bold-leaf hostas, or foreground planting to shrubs!

Details

Botanical name: Hakonechloa macra 'All Gold'
Common name: Hakone grass, Japanese forest grass
Zone: 5 - 9
Sun exposure: Shade (< 4 hours sun) to part-sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 12-18" X 18"
Foliage color: Chartreuse and gold
Season of interest: Spring through fall
Uses: Accent, border, container, ground cover, massing, small spaces, underplanting, waterside, woodland

How To Grow

Soil: Prefers organic-rich, well-draining soils. Avoid poorly draining soils composed of heavy clay.
Light: Shade (< 4 hours sun) to part-sun (4-6 hours sun). Full hot sun may scorch the foliage.
Water: Needs regular watering - weekly, or more often in extreme heat.
Spacing: 18 - 24 inches
Fertilizing: Hakonechloa doesn't need supplemental fertilizing in good soils, but if you do fertilize, wait until after the first blush of growth in spring.
Winterizing: In zones 5 and 6, apply a layer of extra mulch for protection.
Maintenance & pruning:  Trim back the old foliage in late fall or early spring before new growth emerges. Divide every 2 to 3 years in the spring. Older plants can be dug up and cut in half for quick propagation.

Great shade grass

Had trouble finding any if these grasses in my area. I needed more to help fill some empty spots in the garden. They are slow growing so be patient. But the results are spectacular!! People comment on the gorgeous bright green color not found on any other variety of grasses. Keep moist in the heat. The packaging was perfect and the plants came in impeccable shape. Planted easily and are beautiful!

Beautiful Grass

Waited a couple of days then planted in a large pot, in the shade. It is doing great. Can't wait for it to be FULL and it's in prime.

Japanese Grass Failure

Well. I am sort of bummed. I was excited when I first received. It was vibrant and healthy. It sits in full shade. I mixed some organic soil with the native dirt and watered in well. Fertilized as well. I use a probe to water only when the reading is below moist. The plant has thinned with no new growth at all. Looks as if it is only a matter of time before it dies. Is there anything I can do to rescue it?
