Buy Hakonechloa macra Sunflare ('HABsf1007') (PBR) hakonechloa: A great grass for a pot.

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

    Emerging each spring a fresh chartreuse-yellow, the foliage soon develops contrasting deep crimson tips, and as the season progresses the colours become richer - particularly when grown in full sun. In smaller gardens, Hakonechloa Sunflare is a great grass for a pot, but if there is room, try planting it in generous drifts - or use it to line the edges of a path for a jaw-dropping display.

  • 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 this Finlay of grasses but this one is extra special

I love the whole family of Hachonachloa grasses and when I spotted Sun flare which was a new addition I knew I had to have it! It has acid yellow/lime green leaves and mine is only in its third summer so has yet to acquire its red tips and stripes. I have mine in a pot and the grass just has such a lovely habit and in my view needs a star position on its own to be appreciated. It lights up an area and in the dusk when my photo was taken it positively shines. I love it and all of the family. They are beautiful and very well behaved.
