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.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Water regularly during the growing season, and reduce watering during the winter when the plant is dormant.
  • Maintenance: Remove any dead or damaged leaves as necessary to keep the plant looking neat.
  • Pruning: This plant does not require pruning, but you can trim back any dead or damaged leaves as necessary. In the spring, you can cut back the plant to remove any dead foliage and encourage new growth.
  • (Optional):Fertilize using a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring before new growth appears.
