Hakonechloa macra Nicolas is a warm-coloured form of ornamental Japanese Forest Grass, (also known as Hakone Grass). Its slow, non-invasive habit makes it ideal for softening the edge of borders. The foliage comprises gently arching blades of grass in fiery colours that move relaxingly in the breeze. Unobtrusive flower spikes in a delicate green appear towards the end of the summer. As the plant matures towards the autumn, the red, orange and gold of the leaves deepens in colour.

Ideally plant in clumps or drifts on the edge of borders or in containers to soften hard lines or contrast with sculptural features.
