Why We Love It

A gold-green grass with a funky hairstyle Hakenochloa macra 'Aureola' really creates a visual scene- shimmering in the breeze or catching the sunlight.

From spring each year its stripy leaves emerge and last right through until winter when it dies back.

Just run your hand through the grass - it's so tactile too.

Planting Calendar

Plant in March, April, May, September, October, November.

Flowers in August, September.

Planting and Care

Give hakonechloa a spot where the sunlight is able to show off the stripy leaves. The sun gives it them an attractive red tint too.

Into the Ground

  1. Give your plant a good drink of water.
  2. Dig through the soil to loosen it.
  3. Make a hole twice as wide as the rootball.
  4. Place your plant in the hole.
  5. Make sure that the top of the roots are visible and level with the surface of the soil.
  6. Fill in the hole with soil, firming with your hands gently around the plant.
  7. Water well.

Into a Pot

  1. Find a pot at least twice the size of the plant's temporary container.
  2. Raise it onto pot feet to assist drainage.
  3. Add potting compost to the pot, filling up to about three-quarters.
  4. Insert your plant into the pot, lining up the top of the rootball with just under the pot's rim.
  5. Backfill around the roots and water well.
