1 Gal. Aureola Japanese Forest Grass - Unique Golden/Green Variegated and Mounding Ornamental Grass
For graceful, colorful groundcover that won't fall to pests or disease, look no farther than the Aureola Japanese Forest Grass. Featuring lithe stems that support intricately variegated foliage, this grass behaves similarly to bamboo, without the spreading issues. The gold longitudinal stripes lay against rich green coloring, while the color gradually turns a warm rose for autumn. The shiny, yet papery foliage arches around the mound, swaying and rippling with even a slight breeze. Aureola Japanese Forest Grass, botanical name Hakonechloa macra Aureola, is best suited to USDA zones 4-9, with partial to full sun. It reaches a height and spread of 18 in. The variegated foliage is medium green, with yellow striping and turns coppery-red in autumn. This is an ornamental grass that displays eye-catching pops of color throughout every season. It gives you a wide array of texture and fluidity in your landscape, with finely textured foliage that sways in the wind.
