Aureola Hakone Grass (Japanese Forest Grass)

Aureola Hakone Grass (Japanese Forest Grass)

The best ornamental grass for shady landscape spaces! Aureaola Hakone Grass, also known as Japanese Forest Grass, boasts mounds of gorgeous, variegated foliage that changes color depending on its environment. This amazing perennial grass shows more yellow in partly shaded areas, and more green tones when planted in full shade. The cooler days of autumn brings shades of gold, pink and red to the landscape. Aureola Hakone has an excellent cascading form and is non-invasive. Like other ornamental grasses, it makes a great accent planting along walkways, near an entry or as a focal point display. Essential to year-round displays as it retains its texture and interest even after the growing season.
