Home of the NO SMALL PLANTS!
We are a bona fide nursery where we grow plants. That means we don’t just pop our plants out of a tray and sell you a liner. Our plants are grown on to a bigger size, many times even to a mature plant!

Height: 9-14 inches Spread: 18-24 inches
Common Name: Hakone Grass
A brilliant grass that absolutely glows in the shade! This all-gold version of Hakonechloa macra is brighter in color than ‘Aureola’, has a more upright habit, and is a more vigorous grower. It tends to be more chartreuse in heavier shade, and brighter gold in more sun.
Though this grass does spread by rhizomes, 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 early fall.
Info: Our plants are grown in 5.25 x 5.25 x 5.25 inch pots and develop large root systems. These are not a small liner but a plant you can put right into your garden. That means you will get a bigger plant right away compared to a starter plant. We guarantee you will get a true to type healthy plant that you will love for years. If you have any problems or questions we are happy to help. During early spring plants may still be breaking dormancy so they may appear smaller than they will be when they fully leaf out. In Fall or Winter the plants may be dormant which means the may be losing or have completely lost their leaves.
Shipping: We do not ship to Hawaii or Alaska due to cost and import restrictions. Plants will be removed from their pots and loose soil removed and the rootball placed in a bag. We are an inspected nursery from the VA Dept of AG.
