RE: Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola'

When I first saw Bonnie's message I was thinking she was talking about the
"All Gold" variety I saw in WWF's catalog. I don't really care for the color
on that one. Then after I saw your message, Gene, I went looking for the
species. I like that one almost as much as "Aureola". And maybe it will grow
faster. Decisions, decisions...there is space on either side of the
teahouse, perhaps I'll buy both and see what happens. 
My psuedo Japanese garden gets watered regularly so I'm hoping that won't be
a problem. I have had trouble with a few things like hosta; could be the
high heat and low humidity that just melts them down.

Hello Japanese woodland grass fans...
    Of which I am one! I have been growing several cultivars of Hakonechloa 
for some years now in my garden. While in Madison, Wisc. I saw it growing in

almost every garden I visited. Much more cold hardy than generally listed in

literature. Cyndi, the grass will take quite a bit of dry after being 
established, but it will not take a try desert environment. Some cultivars 
will take more light than others, but all do best in bright open shade. 
Aureola is probably the slowest growing of the cultivars. No one considers 
the species and I truly like that one. It was my first, a gift from a friend

years back. Now a flowing clump at a junction of two paths in raised bed 
with hypertufa trough. Seeds are not produced until very late in the season.

Trying to remember exactly when, believe it was in October, November. At 
that point one could give it a bit of a haircut in need be.
    My grasses are growing on the side of a hill where they can flow.... 
especially love them with limestone rocks.
