Black Mondo Grass
Small pink flowers and glossy black berries add to the beauty!
Just 6 inches high, this plant spreads about a foot wide, with long, slender, elegant leaves of a purple so dark they appear black. It sets small, bright pink blooms in summer, followed by glossy black berries that remain through autumn into winter, but its primary emphasis is on the splendid foliage. Such a nice change of pace from green- and blue-hued dwarf ornamental grasses!
Grow Black Mondo Grass in any good, well-drained soil. It is highly resistant to heat and drought, but appreciates a winter mulch. Zones 6-10.
