Dwarf Mondo Grass {25 Pots - 3 1/4 in.}

Similar to the regular Mondo Grass (which grows 6-10" tall), this variety grows only 2-3" tall.

If you are considering purchasing this plant in bare root form, please read about bare root plants (especially the paragraph about bare root grasses) so you know what to expect.

Things to Note
If you live in Zone 9 or 10, you may need to offer Nana some shade - contact your local cooperative extension to determine.

If you live in Zone 6, you'll probably need to provide some cover during the winter months for it to survive your winter.

Gardener Tip
One of the most incredibly elegant Mondos, Nana is shockingly stunning when used to create patterns between stepping stones or even alternating in checkerboard fashion with large patio pavers. Consider taking a section of lawn, dividing it into quadrants, and alternating plantings of Nana with pebbles or annual flowers for a show-stopping display.

For faster filling, consider purchasing more of this Mondo due to her slower growth rate.
General information about Ophiopogon (Mondo Grass):
A reliable, hardy evergreen with thin blade-like foliage in a dark shade of green, Ophiopogon, often referred to as Lily Turf or Mondo Grass is an excellent ground cover for shady areas where other plants refuse to grow.

Gardeners love Mondo Grass for reliable texture, color and structure in rock gardens, between between pavers or stepping stones, in seashore plantings and as borders and edging for beds and walkways, around shaded pools and even garden statues because it requires no mowing and offers elegance, structure and definition to any area.

Where runoff is a problem, its dense mat of roots is exceptional at holding the ground up, preventing erosion. The depth of color contrasts beautifully with the lighter green of a lawn or the grey hues of garden ornaments and works wonderfully as an evergreen in planters where seasonal annuals provide pops of vibrant color.

If you love to play with shape and design, you will absolutely adore this lush, ornamental grass that creates a dense evergreen ground cover. The deep emerald green leaf blades (1/8 inch wide) form in clumps that need no mowing and will tolerate foot traffic making them a perfect lawn alternative that thrives in shade.

In the summer there are insignificant white flowers and in fall, bright blue berries will beckon birds. Spreads slowly to moderately fast by underground stolons. One of the all-time favorite effortless grasses, Ophiopogon caresses gardens with color and richness.

Things to Note
Our Mondo grasses produce fruit that will drive birds crazy with delight. If you are a birder, this plant is a must have for attracting a variety of species.

Gardener Tips
Consider planting clumps of Mondo in year round planters adding forced tulips in early spring, Begonias and Creeping Jenny in summer and autumn, and sprigs of evergreen bows and berries in winter for continual curb appeal.

Why all the confusion about the common names?
In 1763, the French botanist Michael Adanson described a plant (probably Liriope) that he called Mondo, which remains a common name today.

A few years later, Carl Peter Thunberg described a plant, which he named Convallaria japonica. This species is now known as Ophiopogon japonicus.

A decade later, Portugese botanist Joao de Loureiro described and named the plant we now know as Liriope muscari. Nearly 100 years later Joseph Decaisne described the same species as Ophiopogon muscari.

Over time there have been numerous discussions regarding these plants and the proper botanical names for them. Today, both Liriope and Ophiopogon are treated as distinct genera. In addition to sharing the name Mondo, the plants are also interchangably called Lilyturf and Monkey Grass.

I love this dwarf mondo, and the shipped products have withstood my abuse very well-- it took over a week for me to start planting them, but Kevin helped us figure out how to treat them best to keep them healthy during that time. And then it took me a week... Read full review >

Great plants. Bought for my church.
I planted this tough grass north of my house around my HVAC. I completely neglect it and it still thrives. It holds its beautiful dark green color and spreads to make a dense mat. I love it and plan to order more in the future for other tough spots in my landscape... Read full review >
