Golden Variegated Hakone (Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola') is a perennial ornamental grass known for its brightly coloured leaves and cascading growth habit. It features long, slender blades with green and gold stripes, and its foliage can range from chartreuse to gold depending on light exposure. It is a slow-growing grass, but it forms dense clumps and can provide excellent ground cover in a shaded garden or landscape. In the fall, its leaves may turn pink or red, adding a pop of colour to the autumn garden. Golden Variegated Hakone is also known for its low-maintenance and deer-resistant qualities.
