All Gold Japanese Forest Grasses - A Dozen from Morton Arboretum Fall Plant Sale - September 2020
One of the plants that I've been chasing for a while is a Japanese grass. I posted a 'dreaming post' back in January of this year featuring something called "All Gold Japanese Forest Grasses". I wasn't the only one in our house that has had a little bit of plant lust as Natalie had snapped a photo of a neighbor close to Randall Park that has grasses in their yard and she said: "I like these" when she texted me the photo. So, imagine my delight when I went to the Morton Arboretum Fall Plant Sale and came across a bunch of these All Gold Grass - Hakonechloa macra 'All Gold'. The sign you can see below carries this description:
A vigorously growing, all gold version of the Hakone grass. A cascading habit makes it perfect for the landscape or container. Spreads slowly through rhizomes.
Here - below - is the plant tag that calls out "Part shade to Full Shade".
