JAPANESE FOREST GRASS

Scattered on my deck is a mixed collection of several different types of plants, all in pots of burgundy in assorted shapes and sizes. Each holds individual plants selected for the foliage or flower, form or texture. I have one filled with Japanese Forest Grass (Hakonechloa macra 'all gold'). It is truly an amazing little grass staying in a nice compact clump ( very very slowly spreading), has striking golden green foliage, and moves gracefully with the softess breeze. It performs great in ground or pots and has few pests. Autunm bring shades of bronze, copper, and gold to its leaves. I recently purchased the better known hybrid 'Aureola' which has green and yellow longitudinal strips. Next year when its been in the ground for a while I'll post about it. Either of these grasses are real keepers and you just can't beat them for a partial shade garden.

I don't have that many grasses, but this one looks like a keeper. I'm very fond of sea oats and Korean feather grass, but I swear my Karl Foerster grass looks just like the tall weeds I spent a long time pulling out this spring!

Very attractive looking grass. I have taken more of an interest in grasses the last couple of years. They add such a different texture to the pernnial border. I had been admiring one similiar to this and right off the top of my head I am not sure the name. I am at work so I can't run out and look at the tag. The reason I bought it was that it likes the shade so I planted it under the rose that is a start from my great grandmother. This rose is very large and need some ground cover under it. I also want it to cover the top and front of the rock wall to soften the wall up some. So far it is doing well.

Bob said...

Lostroses, This is a great grass. Clump growing and non-invasive. One of the best grasses out there, and it grow in partial shade.

Happy Gardening, BOB

Bob said...

Cliff, So is this the grass you have planted with your rose?

BOB

KC MO Garden Guy said...

Bob, Yes it is the Japanese Forest Grass that I have planted under the rose bush. Mine seems to be varigated. I looked at the tag last night and I can't remember what else it said. Yes, I am typing this at work during a slow time so I will try and remember to check it out later when I get home. Cliff
