Black Mondo Grass Seeds - Ophiopogon planiscapus Nigrescens

Ophiopogon Planiscapus Mondo Grass is considered to be a dwarf ornamental grass as it only reaches about 6 inches in height. It is one of the few black-leaved ornamental types of grass in the world and is stunning when planted in mass or as an accent plant in the flower garden.

Black Mondo Grass ground cover is very useful in partial to full shade where it will spread slowly and not be aggressive or invasive. This is a great ornamental for year-round color and interest.
