Also known as Hakone Grass or Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola', this grass looks outstanding in the shade garden. The blades of this ornamental grow in arching tufts that create a waterfall of sharp blades adding complement the larger leaves and forms of hydrangea, hosta, or helleborus. Forest grass creates a cascades of color that will seem to run down hillsides and across garden beds. It draws the eye naturally and creates a feeling of tranquility. Along side hardscaping such as patios is creates a soft border easily breaking up, spilling over and complimenting hard lines. In a soft breeze Forest Grass generates a gentle rustling sound that adds additional sensory elements to the garden.

Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola' emerges in mid-spring with variegated chartreuse and green blades that arch toward the ground as they grow. As fall approaches hints of muted oranges and reds creep into the bright colored foliage and small seed heads emerge. In norther climates the grass will die back to the ground, but in southern climates it may persist all year.
