      Love the lime and purple combo. Too bad Japanese Forest Grass (Zone 5) doesn't grow very well in my Zone 3 garden. It's alive and healthy, but has only grown to be about 8" in diameter...

      japanese forest grass - near hosta in virginia garden or in bedroom window Hakonechloa Macra (Hakone Grass "Aureola") Golden, bamboo-like foliage on plants that have a weeping habit. Forms a 12–18 inch tall mound and prefers light to moderate shade and moist, high organic soils. Excellent for shaded sites. Spreads at a slow rate. Space 10–18 inches apart. Perennial. Hardy in Zone 5. (Make sure to plant near the sprinkler.)

    No weeds seen here!

    This long-lasting, recycled rubber border keeps grass and weeds from encroaching and lets you mow right along so there’s no need to trim.

    Getting ready to do some late summer prep to my yard and garden. One thing I am excited to do this year is aerate my lawn and plant some good grass seed. Good bye clover!! Lawn Aerator Sandals | Gardener's Supply

    Shade garden - Black Mondo Grass. I absolutely LOVE this stuff. Imagine it growing as a border for flowering plants with bright colors.

    Shady woodland gardens --Their success depends largely upon combining interesting foliage textures and playing one shade of green off another. This design beautifully partners Japanese forest grass (Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola') with assorted hostas, astilbes and ferns. The result is a soothing medley that will thrive in partial shade, in average to moist soil, in zones 5 to 8.
