Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens'
This is a stunning little ornamental grass like plant that's very hardy.
It makes a wonderful accent plant, especially in a clump, and it's great in containers.
Each 6" tall circular mound is composed of truly black 1/4" wide foliage.
Spreading by rhizomes, a single plant will make a nice 20" wide mat in 2 years. For fast coverage, we plant on 8" centers.
This easy-to-grow groundcover makes a great backdrop for blues, golds and good imaginations.
Plant in part sun to shade. Grows 6" tall. Origin: France. AGM Winner.
