(Hakone Grass) Hakonechloa 'All Gold' is a new dwarf form of Japanese forest grass that creates an appealing bright spot in the shady or woodland garden. The bamboo-like leaves are bright gold in part sun and more chartreuse in full shade. In the cooler days of Autumn, the leaves have a reddish inflorescence. The gracefully arching foliage is slightly more upright than the more common Hakonechloa 'Aureola'. Hakonechloa 'All Gold' prefers fertile, moist, well-drained soil in part shade. 'All Gold' looks spectacular when planted with blue-leaved hostas! In zones 5 and 6, it is best to mulch with fall leaves and trim back in the spring before the new growth emerges.

Graceful Accent Review by Elizabeth T | Zone: 8b
Gorgeous shot of pure gold in the shade. Tolerates dry conditions. Spreads gently and provides a graceful accent of light. Resistant to deer and slugs. (Posted on 1/12/2012)
