Mondo Grass - Ophiopogon japonicus

Mondo Grass (Ophiopogon Japonicus)

The Mondo Grass is a perennial that does quite well as groundcover, anywhere from pathways to rock gardens. They’re really easy to grow and offer some protection against snails and slugs. During the summer season, you might even see a delicate lily-colored flower arise from the clump.

Where They Do Well:

You can grow Mondo Grass almost anywhere. They do quite well under trees, where typical lawns don’t succeed, or in containers.


They require very little maintenance, aside from some regular watering. You can also divide these clumps easily with a spade and replant elsewhere.
