Hi Sarah, the plant in the photo is NOT monkey grass. It is Japanese Forest Grass which is a perennial and not evergreen. Good luck with your project! Robert

Lefty...I actually think a variegated liriope would give you a closer look...the yellow daylily will add a new color that will break the cool feel of this look

lefty 47 -- you could probably find a low-growing daylily in an cooler yellow shade that might give a closer effect. Happy Returns is a great one but is still pretty bright yellow.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pale, light-reflecting grasses are perfect to edge a path with. Here their reflective light is not only decorative; it acts as a safety feature, illuminating the edge of the path.Japanese forest grass (Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola', zones 5 to 9) is a neat, clump-forming deciduous grass growing to 12 inches, with narrow, arching, green-striped, bright yellow leaves, often reddish tinged in autumn and early winter. Here, Japanese forest grass is planted under pristine white Hydrangea paniculata, creating an enchanting evening walkway.
