Plant of the Week: Hakonechloa macra ‘Aureola’, or golden japanese forest grass, is a slowly spreading, deciduous grass with delicate, bamboo-like foliage to 1’ high and 3’ wide. Though the species is solid green, this cultivar possesses brilliant golden foliage streaked with narrow lime-green bands. As if it weren’t already dramatic enough, the foliage turns an intense pink-red in fall before dying down for the winter. Plants grow well in almost full sun near the coast, but require at least partial shade inland and need reasonably well-drained soil with regular water. In deep shade the foliage becomes more chartreuse and less golden, but plants will continue to grow and flower. A choice plant, alone or in masses, as a woodland groundcover or in containers. Not a good selection for heavy soils or dry gardens. Hardy to 0F. Hakonechloa macra ‘Aureola’ is available this week in one gallon containers.
