(Hakonechloa HABsf1007) Hakonechloa 'SunFlare' is the newest selection of the deciduous Japanese forest grass, arriving from British Columbia, Canada, where it was discovered by nurseryman, Lyle Courtice as a dwarf, compact mutation of Hakonechloa 'All Gold'. We're not sure what else mutated, but it has been a shockingly good grower in our heat and humidity, where it forms an 18" tall x 2' wide clump of bright gold foliage that takes on significant red highlights as the plants age...especially when they receive some early morning sun. Rich moist soil gives the best results.
