Genus Overview: Ophiopogon

Common Name: Mondo Grass

The Mondo Grasses make beautiful grass-like ground covering blankets adaptable to sun in the north, happier in part to open shade farther south. They are not grasses at all; in fact, they are members of the Liliaceae as is Liriope with which they are closely allied. Plant the virtually evergreen Mondo Grasses in fertile soil for best growth. Once established they do demonstrate drought tolerance. Spring planting is advised if you are to attempt them in the north range. Ophiopogon spreads moderately fast and is a colonizing plant. All of the following are offered by pot grown division.
