Ophiopogon ‘Black Beard’, occasionally known as Black Mondo, is a vigorous, tufted perennial grass with long, narrow, arching leaves of stunning deep black which create a beautiful contrast with the bright, purple-flushed white flowers that appear on stems above the foliage in the Summer. The flowers fruit into dark blue, almost black berries in the Autumn months.

Plant in moist, well-drained soil. Prefers slight acidic soils. Keep in full or partial sun. A hardy grass that will grow well in sheltered or exposed positions and should handle all but the harshest Winter weather.
