Hakonechloa, Aureola is rated out of 5 by 5.Rated 4 out of 5 by IowaGardener2 from Lovely grass I've had a clump of this grass growing on the northeast side of my Zone 5b garden for past 3 yrs. It receives a bit of morning sun, not a fast grower here but my clump is now about 18" wide. Nice contrast with hostas and Palace Purple Heuchera.Date published: 2014-08-02Rated 4 out of 5 by gardener50 from pretty grass When this grass arrived in the mail it was very tiny. It is now only 8 inches tall but spread out to about 12". I hope it grows the entire 24"tall next year. Very pretty in the shade.Date published: 2013-08-27Rated 3 out of 5 by Jennifer from Great looking plant! This is a great looking plant! My only complaint was that the plants arrived in a box dried out and separated from their soil and their pots. They are still small (< 6 inches) although they were planted in the spring. This may be due to their need to recover...Date published: 2008-07-12Rated 5 out of 5 by Rose_Garden from Hakonechloa- Aureola This plant is outstanding. I planted it in my garden where it only receives morning sun and it loves it. I don't know if it can tolerate full sun. I'm going to order more plants and plant it by my deck which receives full sun.Date published: 2006-02-15
