The soft billowing blades of Hakonechloa macra 'Beni-Kaze' are ideal along paths in woodland gardens where they can delicately caress the bare ankles and shins of summer strollers. 'Beni-Kaze', meaning "red wind" in Japanese, is an appropriate name, for this grass turns red toward late summer when the autumn winds start to blow. Sunlight makes this grass increase more rapidly but it can burn in the hottest sun.
