Hakonechloa are deciduous perennial grasses that form attractive arching blades, in varying shades followed by clusters of delicate flowers during late summer and autumn. Hakonechloa are best suited to flower beds and borders within a city, courtyard or informal garden. Alternatively. they can be grown in pots and containers. You should expect to see Hakonechloa grow to an approximate height and spread of up to 50m (20”) depending on variety.
Hakonechloa are best planted in moist, well-drained soil of loam, chalk, sand and clay within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. Keep in a sheltered position of full sun or part shade as scorching midday heat can affect the tips of your grass. Dig a hole that is twice the width of the root ball and the same depth, taking care to choose an appropriate site that will fit the mature size of your plant. Firm into place and water thoroughly.
Once fully established, Hakonechloa are easy to care for. You may feel it necessary to apply a layer of mulch at the base of the plant to retain moisture levels and to keep the roots cool during the height of summer. Cut off any dead ends that have been affected by sun scorch to tidy the appearance of your plant. During the winter, cut back any spend blades to ground level.
