Re: Hakonechloa...heat tolerant variety?


Glad to hear the plants fared well Noreen.  Whereas it's always nice to get
input from others who have grown something, nothing matches personal
experience.  I realllllllllllly wanted to try Soldanella and the seller
said, "well, ok, I'll let you have it, but you'll probably just kill it."
He was right, but it took 3 years to kill it and I really just had to know
that for myself.
