Lyle Courtice, owner of HarkAway Botanicals in the lower mainland BC, operates a wholesale nursery that produces high-end collector plants and superior varieties of perennials. Lyle shares a passion for rare and unusual plants, and puts an extreme amount of effort into collecting and developing perennials that soon make their way into our gardens. This year, a gorgeous cultivar of grass Lyle himself selected, Hakonechloa ‘SunFlare’, is hitting the market simultaneously around the globe, a first for any new plant introduction.
This variety has already won an abundance of industry awards and we can’t wait to try it in our own gardens!
Japanese Fountain Grass (Hakonechloa) boasts a waterfall of bright coloured foliage, perfect for mounding the edge of beds. A bright addition to shade/part shade gardens, SunFlare has bright chartreuse foliage with tints of red throughout earlier in the season. Ht: 12-24” Sp: 12-24”
