Ophiopogon japonicus nana - Dwarf Mondo Grass

Ophiopogon japonicus nana, is one of the most tidy plants I can think of. The Dwarf Mondo Grass spreads very slowly. I spot and plant starts every 3 inches to get coverage in a reasonable amount of time. Ophiopogon japonicus nana grows to about 2 inches tall at its best. The Dwarf Mondo Grass blooms with white flowers with a pink blush in the early Summer. Dwarf Mondo Grass will tolerate some sun, but prefers mid-day shade. Ophiopogon nana says darker green than the regular species plants in the same exposure. The Dwarf Mondo Grass is hardy to zone 7.
