Golden Variegated Hakone Grass


This lovely ornamental grass enlivens shady areas or containers with its brightly colored foliage and graceful, flowing form. Aureola features slender, bright yellow leaves with a green stripe that flushes red in the fall. Interesting, dainty flowers extend outward from the foliage in August and September. For best foliage color and form choose a site in dappled sun, morning sun or late afternoon sun as hot midday sun will burn the leaves. In too much shade, the leaves lose their bright color and the plant becomes spindly.

Early in the season, many plants are pruned to encourage later fullness, and therefore may vary in size from the photo and size range. Rest assured, they hold the same glorious potential.
