Deer tend to leave it alone!

Great for woodland settings.
Brighten the shade naturally with this splendid Golden Hakone Grass, an upright, vigorous cultivar that grows slowly but surely into a large, magnificent clump. 'All Gold' is the most spectacular Hakonechloa yet, delighting with its exquisite foliage color and its elegant habit.

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.

Great Grass to Brighten Shaded Area
James from NC wrote (March 02, 2012):
This is a wonderful grass for the shaded garden. My experience with it is quite stellar. It is a true survivor. It likes a combination of moisture and shade, unlike most grasses you'll find for sale. H. macra 'Allgold' steadily increases to "wow" each year. It fades slightly throughout the summer, but it still maintains a wonderful chartreuse color.
