Cultivar Notes - 'Aureola'
Variegated but nearly all yellow, the leaf blades have narrow green stripes near the margins. Perhaps its most fascinating attribute is the cascading habit in which most of the leaves arch in the same direction, appearing much like a golden waterfall.
Genus Notes - Hakonechloa
Slow spreading grass with very graceful arching foliage. Prefers partial shade. Combines wondrfully with Astilbe, Hosta, and Pulmonaria.
Series Notes - Warm Season Grasses
Warm season grasses grow most actively during the warmer months, then flower in late summer or fall. Most go completely dormant in winter. Warm season grasses include: Andropogon, Calamagrostis brachytricha, Carex, Cortaderia, Erianthus, Hakonechloa, Miscanthus, Panicum, Pennisetum, Schizachyrium, and Sporobolus.
