All Gold Japanese Forest Grass combines the beauty of mounding forest grass with bright golden-chartreuse color to create a highly sought-after perennial grass for both shady and sunny gardens. Moisture is the key with Japanese Forest Grass. This beautiful, texture-rich grass thrives in moisture retentive soils. Don’t overwater, but ensure that they are kept moist, particularly if sited in a full sun location. For best results, protection from hot afternoon rays is preferred. Slow growing, but very much worth the wait. Tolerates planting beneath Black Walnut trees. Mulch covering is recommended for overwintering.
