Ophiopogon (Mondo Grass, Monkey Grass, Kyoto)

Gardeners love Ophiopogon for reliable texture, color and structure in rock gardens, between pavers or stepping stones, in seashore plantings and as borders for beds and walkways. The deep emerald green leaf blades form in clumps that need no mowing and will tolerate foot traffic, making them a perfect lawn alternative that thrives in full sun or full shade.

In the summer there are insignificant white flowers and in fall, bright blue berries will beckon birds. A slow spreader and one of the all-time favorite effortless grasses, Ophiopogon covers gardens in evergreen color that gives great contrast to other perennials.
