Mondo Grass

Genus: Opihiopogon Japonicus

This ground cover is actually a lily. Variations in leaf color include solid or variegated leaves. Black mondo grass is known for its dark purple leaves. Mondo grass grows in clumps and is effective as a border, use in between stone pavers and as a lawn replacement in applications where there is no significant traffic. Some dwarf varieties are only a couple of inches tall while other varieties grow to six or more inches. While grown primarily for foliage, some varieties have delicate flowers and berries.
