Used and popular in show gardens, Hakonechloa macra Aureola excels in calm and serene Japanese gardens as its sound and visual impact are a delight to the senses especially as the leaves catch the breeze.

Useful Tip:

Plant in containers or flower beds and watch the leaves give a beautiful golden backdrop to nearby flowers.
