Info

From the Greek Ophis (Snake) and Pogon (Beard). A close botanical relative to Liriope and very similar in most aspects and applications. Generally is more of a shade lover and less tolerant of full, hot sun (morning sun ok). Mondo and Dwarf Mondo are often used as far North as Zone 5 even though their cold hardiness rating is zone 6 or 7. These installations are successful when a microclimate is created in the landscape by planting in a protected area: a shady enclosed garden or courtyard surrounded by other plants and shrubs. Native to Southeast Asia.

A RARE, mini Mondo, only 2" tall, with each leaf vertically striped with a soft gold band. The slow spreading clumps are a perfect small scale ground cover for that special shaded spot (i.e. at the base of that Buddha statue you're going to buy!). Perfect between stones, in pots and even as a bonsai candidate! USDA Z7

"Simply irresistible" is the best way to describe this dwarf version of mondo grass with dark green, grass-like foliage, which eventually makes a tight mat in even the worst of conditions. Plant dwarf mondo on 6-12" centers for a wonderful evergreen groundcover. Ophiopogon 'Gyoku Ryu' could best be described as looking like a rich, dark green lawn of pre-mowed grass...what a great idea!
