Black Mondo Grass - 1 Gallon Potted Perennial
1 left in stock
Ophiopogon planiscapus ‘Nigrescens,’ or Black Mondo Grass, is a clumping plant with thick tufts of arching black leaves. The strappy leaves are about 12 inches long (30 cm.) when mature. Plants send out racemes to form little baby plants over time. In late spring to early summer, racemes of pink bell-like flowers appear. From these, bluish-black berries form. Mondo grass is evergreen, deer and rabbit resistant, and even salt and drought tolerant once established. The plant is hardy. There are a few types of mondo grass, but the black variety brings an interesting colour note to the landscape that really sets off other plant hues. It is useful in full to partial shade sites.
