Mondo Grass is a shade-loving grass-like ground cover that creates a beautiful carpet of narrow, rich-green leaves all year round. It can be used to replace grass in shady spots, to edge beds and pathways, and it is an essential component of Japanese gardens, planted beside rocks and water features, or in any shady corner. It grows from zone 7, and often survives in sheltered spots in zone 6 as well. In warmer areas it is completely evergreen. In summer short spikes of whitish-lavender flowers will be seen, and these become blue-black berries in fall, adding interest. This easily grown plant has so many uses around the garden, and adds a richness and completeness to your planting, in any style of garden.

  • Lush, green, grass-like ground cover
  • Thrives in all levels of shade
  • Excellent edging plants for paths and beds
  • Evergreen in warmer zones
  • Easily grown and pest-free

Mondo Grass will grow in any well-drained soil, preferring damper soils, but tolerating some dry periods too. It grows from full sun to full shade, preferring shade in hotter areas. In sunny areas the soil needs to be constantly moist for best growth. This plant has no pests or diseases, and it is easy to grow with almost no maintenance required at all. In colder areas it may turn yellow in winter, so simply cut back the foliage in early spring, and fresh, new, rich green leaves will soon return.
