Ophiopogon japonicus (Mondo Grass) Details

Commonly known as Mondo Grass, this is a striking ornamental grass. It grows as a clump and produces a dense tuft of grass-like, dark green leaves. The foliage has a gentle arch and is adorned with spikes in summer bearing tiny, lilac flowers which are followed by blue-black berries. Plants will typically grow to 30 cm tall and the same wide, performing best when planted in full sun or partial shade on a well-drained site. They will tolerate frost, cool climates, and dry periods once established. Mondo Grasses look best when mass planted and are commonly used in rock gardens, included in borders, used as a ground cover, or grown in a container.
