Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Ebony Knight'

Black Mondo Grass

Watch video on YouTube

The unique black, grass-like leaves of this perennial are a color rarity among plants.  At 6", ‘Ebony Knight’ reminds us of Liriope with its grassy foliage. It has rather insignificant pale pink flowers in early fall followed by black berries.  While slow growing, it is most frequently used as edging or as a ground cover that forms dense grass-like turf.  It is a tough little plant that is tolerant of hot, dry conditions, although its preference is for moist soil in part shade.  Try it with Hostas of any color for a dynamic effect.  Plant 8-10” apart.
