Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens', BLACK MONDO GRASS.

Also called "Arabicus," "Ebony Knight," or "Black Dragon". An easy plant with smooth black grass-like leaves. Forms low plants about 12 inches tall that spread over 1 foot, it blooms with lilac flowers in the June and has shiny black berries that persist throughout the winter. This does best in partial shade, and is great for creating contrast against plants with pale leaves or flowers. The leaves remain shiny and showy all year.

Black mondo grass is similar in appearance to liriope. Straplike, narrow leaves are about 15 inches long. New leaves are green, but they soon turn black. It is a clumping perennial in the lily family that spreads by underground stolons to form an evergreen (so to speak) groundcover that is mostly unfazed by low temperatures.

The original evergreen lily-grass native of Japan & Korea was a normal color of green. The black variety sometimes has a greenish tinge, but is near to a true black plant.

Plants are hardy in USDA Hardiness Zones 5-9. It has been proven hardy to minus 20F.

seeds are dried berries, one seed per berry, plant the berry. 70% of the seedlings will be black, that is why you get a generous amount of seeds.
