Ophiopogon planiscapus
Description
Ophiopogon planiscapus, ‘Mondo Grass', is a small, ground cover evergreen grass-like perennial in the lily family and is sometimes referred to as ‘Lilyturf'. It grows slowly from short rhizomes, and bears tufts of leaves, from which flowers emerge in racemes held on short stems above the leaves. This plant is commonly used in rock gardens or raised beds as an ornamental plant; owing to its dwarf-like qualities it can be lost in borders, but makes an ideal edging plant. Ophiopogon planiscapus is native to Korea and Japan, where it grows on open and forested slopes. It has no particular insect or disease problems, and is incredibly adaptable to sun or shade, in a wide variety of soils. Being evergreen, it comes into its own during the winter period, and makes a superb low growing, ground covering perennial.
