Elegant, Showy Zen Foliage Plant

Searching for just the right edging plant to brighten the edge of your garden beds for your front yard landscape?

Hoping to accent a special feature in your backyard with a knock out foliage plant that won't steal the show?

Like most Asian plants, Golden Japanese Forest Grass (Hakonechloa macroa 'Aureola') draws your eye with its graceful form. Each blade pops with bright yellow gold color and thin green stripes cascade downward in a clean sweep.

What a lovely plant to use in multiples all along the edge of a garden bed, or under trees. Try this as either the "thriller" or the "spiller" in your container gardens. Plant multiple plants as a massed display under trees.

It works in either residential or commercial settings. This is a tough plant that requires little care.

If you are creating an Asian-style garden, this is a wonderful selection to place next to large boulders. They'll become perfect visual partners and work together to tell an evocative tale of contrasting textures.

Golden Japanese Forest Grass features such a restful form, but really kicks it up a notch with its dynamic colorway. This ornamental grass is a winner of the 2009 Perennial Plant of the Year award. You'll love the pink tinge that develops in autumn.

Please understand, a lot of home-owners are on the hunt for this plant. Please order this now, while we still have inventory.

  • Perfect for Asian-style Zen or Meditation Gardens
  • Beautiful foliage
  • Tidy, graceful form
