Buy Hakonechloa macra 'All Gold' hakonechloa: Luminous foliage for partial shade

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

  • Position: prefers a cool, moist environment in sun or part shade
  • Soil: moist, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: slow, non-invasive
  • Flowering period: August - September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This cracking grass is happiest in a lightly shaded spot (ideally where it gets morning sun, but shade during the hottest part of the afternoon) where its golden foliage will really shine. It does tolerate sunnier conditions, but the foliage colour is less luminous, turning a more lime green in full sun. One of the best for forming low groundcover, it looks great planted in big numbers, as well as softening the edges of a pathway or border. It also works really well when potted up on the patio.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost into the planting hold. 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.

Love these grasses


I really love these grasses and have three different varieties. I have found that they grow best in pots as you can really show them off. They start slowly and you may have to wait for the colour to develop but they are worth it. I have a Japanese inspired garden and they really light up the garden.

Hi - I planted this last summer and want to now move it elsewhere this spring - it has just started coming through. Is this the best time to transplant? Thanks


Hello, The best time to move it would be while it is dormant - so from late autumn to early spring.


Can I plant Hakonechloa in the Autumn or is it best to leave until Spring?


Hello, This grass is fully hardy, so it can be planted now. I would only wait until the spring if your soil stays very heavy and wet in the winter.


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
