Hi. I have hakonechloa macra aureola in a pot, given to me by a friend. I think it looks great and I know where I want to plant it, but can anyone tell me what happens to it in winter? Does it die back completely?
What do people do with the area in wintertime?
The Hakenochloa doesn't start into growth until a bit later in spring, so bulbs are a good accompaniment. You can use taller ones like daffs/narcissus, which will use theold foliage as a support, or lower growing ones if you remove the growth in late autumn before the bulb foliage comes through.
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
