Plant Features

The Nicolas Hakone (Japanese Forest Grass) Plant is most often called Nicolas Japanese Forest or Hakone Grass and is one of the rare beauties that offers exceptional color, even in full shade. Its loosely-arching, broad, sword-like leaves emerge medium green, but soon start their transformation, taking on orange hues, and then quickly becoming shades of red, pumpkin and scarlet. Amazingly, these brilliant colors are even more dramatic and intense in cooler autumn weather! This Hakone grass has one of the longest seasons of interest for a shade-loving ornamental.
