All Gold Golden Hakone Grass
Deer tend to leave it alone!
Less cascading and far brighter than 'Aureola,' 'All Gold' adds gleaming yellow tones to the shade. This slow grower shows its best color in partial sun, but grows readily in any moist soil, even dense shade (where it will be more chartreuse than golden). In late summer to early fall, tiny russet-brown flower spikes top the plant. These may be trimmed or left alone, according to your taste; they are not particularly ornamental.
'All Gold' reaches 14 inches high and 18 inches wide in most climates. Unpalatable to deer, it is a good choice even for open and woodland settings. Zones 5-9.
