Care & Size Guidance

Care & Size Guidance

Hakonechloa macra is best grown in part shade, planted in humus rich, consistently moist, well-drained soil. Though it is not at its best, it can tolerate close to full shade.

In midsummer Hakonechloa flowers bloom with light purple inflorescence which fades to tan before dropping off over the course of several weeks.

Compared to many of the cultivars, the original green species tends to be the fastest grower and has a slightly larger ultimate size.
