Buy Hakonechloa macra Sunflare ('Habsfl007') 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.




Every garden needs one of these!


Beautiful grass with stunning colour. Cant wait to see the colours it displays in the Autumn.
