All Gold Japanese Forest Grass
Shipping Autumn of 2021
Electric! Few plants have the power to illuminate your landscape like All Gold Japanese Forest Grass. This low-growing Fringe is high-voltage! Each slender blade is a neon-yellow color that radiates in lightly shaded sites. In deeper shade, the color becomes more of a chartreuse hue that also pops nicely. Use All Gold in your shady entryway area, foundation beds, patio plantings, or rock garden to add season-long intrigue. It also looks smashing in a container as a portable color spot. For even more drama, pair it with a dark-foliaged plant like Obsidian Coral Bells—the result will be stunning!

Japanese Forest Grass is—you guessed it—native to the woodlands of Japan. Specifically, it is found in cool, moist mountain and forest regions on the main island of Honshu. The Japanese have long enjoyed this Fringe in the garden, primarily using it as a potted plant. The colorful selection known as All Gold is relatively new (at least to the U.S.), having arrived on our shores in 2003 via Terra Nova Nurseries in Canby, Oregon. Landscape designers and homeowners alike quickly fell in love with it. Now it’s hard to imagine that a shade garden is complete without it!
All Gold Japanese Forest Grass is a must in Asian-inspired gardens, but it looks sharp in formal gardens of all types. Its clean lines and zippy color suit contemporary designs, and it has a place in more traditional landscapes, too. Victorian gardeners would have loved it!
How to Grow
In most cases, All Gold Japanese Forest Grass is happiest in part shade. It definitely wants some shade in hot summer areas, and it tolerates full sun in cool northern and maritime climates. It appreciates regular irrigation, but needs good drainage. If kept too dry, growth will be stunted. Even under the best circumstances, All Gold is a rather slow grower. In late winter, cut all old growth back to the ground with hand pruners or hedge trimmers to make way for fresh new growth in spring. Pests and diseases are rarely of any concern with this Fringe, and deer usually leave it alone.
