Hakonechloa macra Growing and Maintenance Tips

Prefers moist, well-drained soils in part- shade. Slow to establish, a treat when it does. Trim foliage to the ground in early spring for the flush of next season's growth.


Low-maintenance plant that can be divided in spring once established. In hot areas, applying mulch around the base of the plant will keep the roots cool and moisture in the soil. In the northernmost part of its range, mulching the top of the plant can prevent winter kill.
