Plant: Mondo grass (Ophiopogon japonicus) |

I wasn’t sure what garden to classify this plant in, as we bought it in a 6 pack and we plan to put it everywhere… specifically between stepping stones. =)

I’ve always liked this plant, but never got a chance to grow it. Jas and I really wanted to get the dwarf variety, but we haven’t found it sold in nurseries yet, so we got this one. It was the last one too! I wonder if that’s why the peeps at the nursery gave us a discount on it… hmmm.
