Buy Hakonechloa macra 'Albovariegata' hakonechloa: A sublime foliage plant

This grass dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August - September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This is an eye-catching small ornamental grass, which forms a cascading hummock of lush green foliage that is attractively striped with creamy white. Happiest in a lightly shaded spot, it looks wonderful when mixed with ferns and hostas, or used to on its own to line the edges of a woodland path. The clean, minimalist style of this grass also makes it a good choice for formal courtyards or minimalist urban planters.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost into the planting hole. Leave flower heads to dry out through the winter, adding valuable texture to plantings. Apply a light mulch (3cm) of well-rotted garden compost after cutting back old foliage and before new growth emerges in spring.

Lovely fluff of happy grass


I absolutely love these grasses. Vibrant in colour and gentle when they sway in a breeze. Perfect to soften the edge of borders.






I use this versatile grass in pots around the garden that has an oriental feel to it. Love the way it sweeps down the pots. Sadly dies back in the winter, but as a plus, it turns a bronze colour before this happens. Love it! Have also given as a gift to friends.

Lovely well behaved grass


Lovely grass, all of this family of grasses are beautiful. Probably my favourite. This one has lovely variegated leaves and I have it by the pond so you get double return as it has a lovely reflection too. All three have a compact habit and are well worth having in the garden, they also look great in pots. Crocus are always reliable and plants of the highest quality, beautifully packaged and protected.

Late ornamental grasses

Late-season grasses come into their own from September adding another element or two - movement and texture to your garden. Most are tall and graceful and most move and sway with a gossamer presence. As autumn continues the texture of the awns, be it soft
