Forest grass


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
I have always been attracted to aureolas and this Aureola is one of the finest. One of the 10 best ornamental grasses and perhaps the best for light shade, this deciduous species from Japan forms a beautiful undulating surf of foliage when planted in drifts. It is simply a great plant.
