Hakonechloa macra 'Albovariegata' (Hakone grass)

Hakonechloa macra 'Albovariegata'

Hakone grass

This exceptionally elegant grass deserves a spot in every garden with its graceful habit and easy culture. Narrow stripes of creamy white accent each deep green leaf, providing a bright glimmer as the leaves sway gently in the breeze. Taller than other selections, 'Albovariegata' is also more vigorous and should be planted in groups of three or more for best effect. It is very tolerant of sun if the soil does not dry out, but may be happiest in a bright shaded spot. Airy flowers appear in late summer as the foliage becomes tipped in pink.
