Black Mondo Grass, Ophiopogon planiscapus Nigrescens, is a deer resistant small growing ornamental grass. An evergreen ground cover, the Black Mondo Grass features black to dark purple leaves, with bell-shaped, pale lavender flowers in summer. New leaves on Black Mondo grass emerge green, but  soon turn black. An excellent grass for rock gardens and border edging, highlighting of the stunning foliage is best accomplished through contrasting with lighter colored plants, walls and pavers. Good for under planting shady woody plants, connecting larger islands and it makes nice dark pools to nestle sculptures in.

Growing only to 3 - 4 inch clumps with slowly spreading, creeping roots to form a matt of golden foliage. Another surprise of the Black Mondo ornamental grass is its sweetly fragrant foliage that burst into the air when ever it is walked on or brushed against. Black Mondo is a grass like plant that thrives in planting Zones 5 - 9. A great container plant when combined with other brightly colored perennials

Growing Tips:
Black Mondo Grass is a grass-like plant. Evergreen or neutral grasses are usually plants that look like grasses but aren't actually classified as grasses, they are generally called grass-like plants. Divide evergreen or neutral grasses and grass-like plants in spring only. Evergreen grasses don't go fully dormant. Dividing plants wounds them to some degree. For evergreen grasses this wounding will affects their ability to live through the winter.
