Grass, Japanese Forest ‘Aureola’

SKU: 108402 Categories: , ,


2009 Perennial of the Year.

One of the most gorgeous of ornamental grasses, also one of the few that prefers shady sites. This forms a low mound of arching stems, with cascading layers of narrow, bright yellow leaves with thin green lines running through them. The graceful effect is similar to a dwarf bamboo. Tiny green flowers are hidden among the leaves. Clumps are slow to grow, but eventually makes a spectacular edging. Combines beautifully with Hostas or ferns, since all have similar requirements. Mature clumps may be divided in early spring, but be sure to make the divisions large for best success. Needs moist soil. Not invasive in the least.
