Color for your spring garden: Hakonechloa macra Aureola

It's a mouthful, but it is also a Victoria Gardens' favorite. (We refer to it by it's common name: Japanese Forest Grass most of the time.) Deer resistant and shade-loving, this grass maxes out at 11 to 15 inches tall. It offers great texture and great color for your garden all season long, but unlike other grasses it pops up and fills out early in the spring.

Well "color me happy" Spring has sprung and the web pix are fantastic!
Forget about the winter blues, loosen up your shoes and rest your weary eyes upon "Victoria's Garden". I'm going to as soon as I can... The best trip north of the city as you can get!
