SHOP – Dwarf Mondo: Dwarf mondo grass is one of the best ground covers. It can be used in many different ways. Many people who have yards is too shady for turf grass find that dwarf mondo gives them the look of turf, can tollerate the shade and an added bonus, it does not need to be mowed!

SHOP – Mondo, Ophiopogon japonica: Mondo grass is a thin blade light sun to shade evergreen ground cover. When mature, it will have a light blue berry fruit during the summer months. This is an excellent choice of ground cover for areas that do not get much daylight. It does need some direct or filtered light so complete shade will not work for this plant.
