Hakonechloa macra 'Alboaurea'

Hakonechloa macra 'Alboaurea' (Hakonechloa macra (Hakonechloa))

Just arrived in my garden;-) Promised myself not to buy any more plants this year... but when I have spotted this in the garden centre simply had to have it... couldn't find it anywhere and it was on the top of my list of plants: 'must have it', lol.
it's not going to sit on this chair forever, just wanted to take a pic in the sun, lol
Have seen this grass for the first time at Beth Chatto Gardens - planted with red leaved Japanese Acer - fell in love with this combination.

Haha, I know how it is! It's an impossible habit to kick! :P

I bet this golden grass looks great with maple (I need to get down to Beth Chatto's garden some day)! Are you going to use that inspiration in locating this?

will post a close up soon Sticki:)
Tralamander - a trip to Beth Chatto garden's is a must. I went there in spring - think it was May. Plenty to see and get inspiration from...
Just moved my poor Japanese acer (lost all it's leaves this summer) to the front garden (more sheltered), earlier underplanted it with creeping jenny - but definitely swapping it with the grass.
