  • Hakonechloa, Aureola is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by 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.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by 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...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.
