Mixing patterns in a garden can be beautiful. Here the striped pattern of the Japanese Hakone Grass contrasts beautifully with the dainty flowers of Lady's Mantel and a rounded leaf shape of Siebold Sedum.
Japanese Hakone Grass grows vey well in part shade. Its golden leaves have a weeping effect and its brightness in the shade draws the eye. Twelve to eighteen inches tall, a tough plant that likes moist soil. Deer won’t eat this one.
Add Textural Contrast Shaded sections of the Japanese garden rely on subtle color contrast and bold textural differences to create interest. Here chartreuse and green hostas surround the base of a tree while variegated hakone grass softens the edge of the bed.
