Soil: Prefers humus-rich, well-drained soil. Dislikes poorly drained, heavy clay or very dry soils.
Light: Part shade - shade -- Full hot sun tends to 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 northern zones (5 and 6), mulch with 2 ft of fall leaves, or pine bough branches. In southern growing zones mulch is not necessary.
Maintenance & pruning: Prune back old foliage in late fall, or before new leaves emerge in spring. Divide every 2 to 3 years in spring. Older plants can be dug up and cut in half for quick propagation.
