Mondo Grass

Ophiopogon spp.

Mondo Grass Plant Features

Tufts of bright green, grass-like leaves that retain their color all year long make mondo grass a top pick as an evergreen groundcover or edging plant. The plant slowly forms thick dense clumps that add texture and interest to the garden and has been a popular landscape staple for generations. Mondo grass is a super-easy plant in a sunny or partially sunny location. The plants grow 12 to 18 inches tall and produce spikes of blue flowers in the summer, followed by pretty blue-black berries later on. Mondo grass is also deer resistant. Hardy from zones 6-11.
