White Variegated Hakone Grass

Hakonechloa macra Albo Striata (White Variegated Hakone Grass) is one of the most gorgeous of ornamental grasses. And one of the few that prefers shady sites. It forms a low mound of arching stems, with cascading layers of narrow leaves striped with green and creamy-white. The graceful effect is similar to a dwarf bamboo. Tiny green flowers are hidden among the leaves. Clumps are slow to grow, but eventually makes a spectacular edging.

Part of the Northern Sunset brand, it prefers rich, well-drained to moist soil in part shade to part sun.
