Hakonechloa macra ‘Naomi’


Just like Hakonechloa 'Aureola' but 'Naomi' develops red and burgundy tints earlier and to a greater degree.

'Naomi' is a selection of 'Aureola' with foliage that develops red tint earlier and to a much greater degree than 'Aureola'. Foliage will emerge gold in spring and begin developing red tint through summer, continuing to intensify all the way to fall. More red will develop in brighter sun conditions.
