Black Mondo Grass
Black Mondo Grass, Ophiopogon planiscarpus 'Nigrescens', is a very useful landscaping plant due to its black color. Rare in the plant world, black colored leaves contrast very nicely with light colored leaves, or white rocks...anything that is the opposite of black. The plants spread slowly and are evergreen in nature. The flowers appear in summer, are bell shaped and can be pink, pale violet, or white.
