Description

Details

(Golden Variegated Hakone Grass) Hakonechloa 'Aureola' is a striking ornamental grass with variegated leaves that are nearly all yellow with narrow green stripes, mostly near the margins. Perhaps its most fascinating attribute is the cascading habit in which most of the leaves arch in the same direction, appearing much like a golden waterfall. Plant this grass where it will cascade down slopes, drape over rocks, crawl over the edges of walls, at the front of the garden, or even in containers. Though 'Aureola' does spread by stolens, it is a slow grower and will not rapidly overtake its neighbors. When grown in part shade, the yellow tones in the leaves will be most pronounced. In deep shade, the variegation will be lime green.
