Once a month we will highlight a plant that is both suitable and stylish for the traditional Auckland garden. This month our plant is :
Hakonechloa macra : Japanese temple grass
If organised chaos is what you enjoy to see in your Auckland garden, then the Hakonechloa macra : Japanese temple grass is a fantastic choice. This free forming textured Phormium is extremely hardy and will tolerate a wide range of soil and atmospheric conditions. A native to Japan, this plant is perfect for structured pots that will create a dynamic array of colour to your Auckland garden area. Understated yet elegant, the Hakonechloa macra is a welcomed addition as a designer plant.
