Hakonechloa macra & cvs.

I started collecting Hakonechloa in 2008 when I found a new cultivar called ‘All Gold’. I kept on finding more and then decided to see if I could get a National Collection. I was awarded collection status at the end of 2014. At the time I was growing the main plants on my balcony and had my backups on my allotment. When I became Head Gardener at Canterbury Cathedral, I had the opportunity to move my collection into my office garden. In 2016 I was lucky enough to get a spot at the Hampton Court Flower Show, where I got a silver award. The collection is small, but new cultivars are coming out now and then, so it is still growing!

Check before you visit! The Collection may not be open all the time, or it may be the wrong season for the plants.
