Hakonechloa Macra Hakone Grass Back For First Spring - May 2022
Last year, I bought three Japanese Forest Grasses - Hakonechloa Macra Hakone Grass - from Northwind up in Wisconsin and planted them right at the base of the big Northern Red Oak tree - the tree swing tree amongst some hostas. These grasses are similar to the All Gold variety that I have in a few places, but these aren't as 'lime green' color, but rather a darker green. They're also (per the signage) more vigorous.
This is their first Spring and all three of them have emerged from the mulch. You can see them (below) tucked into the border with some hostas (Frances Williams and others) above them.
My plan is to let all of these things come up and then decide if I need to transplant a few things around. The bare root hostas are starting to get to a more-mature size and as they fill in, I think there might be a few more than necessary here.
