greenhouse Hakonechloa macra ‘Aureola’

Hakonechloa macra ‘Aureola’
(Forest Grass)

There are a few varieties of Forest Grass out there, but the most popular is ‘Aureola.’ This variety has vibrant gold and green striped leaves that grow upward and then gracefully cascade…creating what is often referred to as a “waterfall” growth habit.  They are slow to spread but well worth the wait. Established plants are spectacular in front of a shady border. Like other ornamental grasses, Forest Grass provides winter interest.

Miscanthus ‘Dixieland’
(Variegated Maiden Grass)

This Miscanthus is a virtual beacon in any garden. Established, vase-shaped clumps of these vibrant green and white variegated leaves draw attention anywhere in the landscape. The tidy clumps are only 4-5’ tall. ‘Dixieland’ flowers develop in early fall and persist above tan foliage all winter long.

Calamagrostis ‘Karl Foerster.’

Karl Foerster’ was the first ornamental grass selected by the perennial plant association as its Perennial Plant of the Year. Why? Because: 1) it’s tidy and perfectly upright; 2) it develops its flowers in early June (several months earlier than most grasses); 3) its flowers last all summer, fall, and winter; and 4) it’s extremely hardy.  This variety of Calamagrostis forms 4-5’ tall clumps that spread slowly and maintain a stiff, upright habit.
