Plant Information

12-18” tall x 12-18” wide. Japanese Forest Grass ‘All Gold’ brightens shady beds and woodland gardens with dramatic color. Plant in masses along paths and terraces to soften edges and provide illumination. Japanese forest grass looks lovely sprawled across large rocks and flowing from containers. Plants require adequate moisture for best performance, but also require adequate drainage. Rich and evenly moist organic soils provide an optimal planting site. In hot southern regions plants will require more shade, but in cooler regions, dappled light is ideal for developing rich golden color. Foliage takes on a chartreuse color in full shade and will burn in full sun. Japanese forest grass grows beneath black walnut trees and looks stunning massed in the tree’s shade. Mulch plants in winter to protect crowns from heaving and freeze-thaw damage.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
