Electric. There's no other word to describe this plant's effect on the landscape than electric. Wide foliage blades are more upright and spiky than other Hakonechloa and form a tighter, slightly smaller mound in the garden. You won't notice the form difference, however since you will be dazzled by this plant's glimmering, glowing gold colored foliage without a speck of green. Plant it in partial shade for best results and plant it in groups for a galvanizing landscape effect that is impossible to achieve with any other plant!
Best grown in humusy, consistently moist, well-drained soils in part shade. Tolerates part to full shade.
