These graceful members of the Poaceae family are named after Hakone, a region of Japan where they can be found growing wild in shady areas with humus-rich soil.
Discovered in a French trial garden, this recently introduced Hakone Grass is distinctive for its smaller stature and unique foliar blend of fall hues. The pendent, creamy white and yellow-green blades, which sport irregular green bands, appear similar to ‘Aureola’ during the spring and summer months.
Once the weather cools, some of the foliage transmutes deep reddish purple colors, while many leaves retain their bright variegation, crafting an exceptional multitoned spectacle. (pp#19,897)
