PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Hakonechloa macra 'Alboaurea' AGM
Golden Hakonechloa
Limited stock
Type/Hardiness Grass, Hardy
Flowering period Summer
Height 12-18in/30-50cm
Light preference Sun, Part shade
Soil preference Moist, fertile, humus-rich
Sowing time/depth , Barely cover
A stunning, deciduous grass that does very well in both sun and light shade. Produces lush clumps of arching, cream, yellow and green, narrowly-striped foliage that catches the light in a breeze. Flower racemes on slender stalks appear in summer, followed by delicate seeds heads. I have not found it to be at all invasive and it is a valuable addition to the garden. The seeds on offer are unlikely to come true, but may produce some interesting specimens - worth a try! Plants were until recently available, but I've now sold out due to popular demand! I hope to have more soon.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow seed thinly in modules in a good quality, moist compost, covering with a thin layer of compost or vermiculite. Grow on in small pots, planting out when all risk of frost is past.
