Description

Height x Spread: 30cm x 45cm 

Carried on low arching stems the delicately striped green and white strap-like leaves of this elegant Hakonechloa, tumble over each other like a bubbling spring, bringing movement and sound as well as elegant structure to a garden.  Perfect for adding interest and richness to a shadier garden, it makes striking textural combinations with Hosta and Ferns

Its ability to stay upright over winter also makes it perfect for edging or mass planting.  Easy to grow, just remove old stems and faded foliage in late winter but wait until spring to divide.  It thrives in a moist but free-draining fertile soil in partial shade, but can tolerate more sun too.
