Ophiopogan Black Dragon 10lt

Ophiopogon ‘Black Dragon,’ also known as Black Mondo Grass, is a popular ornamental plant from the Asparagaceae family. It is a low-growing perennial that is valued for its dark and almost black foliage, which creates a striking contrast in garden settings.

Foliage: The leaves are narrow, strap-like, and have a rich dark purple to black coloration, giving it the name ‘Black Dragon.’ The foliage typically grows in dense clumps and can reach a height of around 15-20cm.

Growth habit: Ophiopogon ‘Black Dragon’ is a slow-growing, spreading plant. It forms a dense mat of foliage, making it an excellent ground cover option for gardens and landscapes.

Flowers: In late spring or early summer, Black Mondo Grass produces small, pale pink to light lavender flowers on short stalks. The flowers are followed by small, glossy black berries in the fall.

Sun and soil requirements: Ophiopogon ‘Black Dragon’ thrives in partial to full shade. It prefers well-draining, moist, and fertile soil but can tolerate a wide range of soil conditions.

Uses: Black Mondo Grass is often used as a ground cover, border plant, or accent plant in rock gardens, containers, and landscape beds. Its dark foliage provides an appealing contrast when paired with lighter-coloured plants.

Maintenance: Once established, Ophiopogon ‘Black Dragon’ is relatively low-maintenance. Regular watering, especially during dry spells, will help keep the plant healthy and vibrant. It can be divided every few years to propagate and rejuvenate the clumps.
