Ophiopogon planiscapus nigrescens (Black Mondo) Details

Commonly known as Mondo Grass, this is a clump forming plant with fine, near black foliage. The foliage is complemented with flower spikes in summer which bear tiny, pale pink flowers and are followed by blue-black berries. It typically grows to 30 cm tall and the same wide, performing best when planted in full sun or partial shade on a well-drained site. It will tolerate frost, cool climates, and dry periods once established. This Mondo Grass looks best when mass planted and is commonly used in rock gardens, included in borders, planted as a ground cover, or maintained in a container.
