Ophiopogon japonicus

Mondo Grass, Ophiopogon japonicus, is not a true grass but comes from the Asparagus family, Asparagaceae. While Mondo Grass can grow in full sun it does better with a little shade during the summer months, it is also suited to semi-shaded aspects. It grows best in a fertile soil and doesn’t mind free draining clay soils. Once established Mondo Grass can be quite vigorous in its growth and can spread to cover large areas. Saying that it’s easy to control by using a spade to reduce the size of the clump and digging out the unwanted plants
