Hakonechloa macra 'All Gold'
Common Name: Grass-Ornamental, Hakone Grass, Japanese Forest Grass
Zone 5 to 10, Full sun
Plants reach 9 to 14 inches tall and 18 to 24 inches wide. A brilliant that absolutely glows in the shade! This all-gold version of H. macra is brighter in color than Hak. m. 'Aureola', has a more upright habit, and is reportedly a more vigorous grower. It tends to be more chartreuse in heavier shade, and brighter gold in more sun.
Though this does spread by stolens, it is a slow grower and will not rapidly overtake its neighbors. Plant it where it can cascade down slopes, drape over rocks, crawl over the edges of walls, at the front of the garden, or even in containers.
Hakonechloa is grown mainly for its beautiful foliage, though it does produce seed heads. Tiny, inconspicuous reddish brown flower spiklets appear in airy clusters from late summer thru mid-fall.
Thirty (30) plants per flat (or tray). Approximate Plug Measurements: 4.25 inches deep x 2 inches wide.

I received the flat of Hakonechloa macra 'All Gold' and all of the plants were in good shape. All have been planted and seem be thriving. Very happy with this nursery and I'll definitely order from them in the future.
