2009 Perennial of the Year

(designated by Perennial Plant Association)

Hakonechloa macra aureola

Hakonechloa macra 'aureola'

This perennial is highly prized as a "lightening" accent to shady areas with its bright, cascading showy growth.

  • offers bright highlights to shady areas
  • Hardiness – Zones 5 to 9
  • Size – approximately 12-18"h x 18-24"w
  • Light – partial shade - partial sun (not hot afternoon sun)
  • Soil – moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil

This bright, low-maintenance shade perennial looks great with blue hostas and dark leafed plantings. It can also used in containers, as it dramatically spills over the edges of the pot.
