This plant is ornamentally grown for its tufts of grass-like leaves.It is an evergreen, sod-forming perennial plant.
Ophiopogon japonicus, commonly called mondo grass, is an evergreen, tuberous-rooted, rhizomatous, perennial of the lily family. It typically forms an arching clump to 8 to 12 tall and as wide of narrow, linear, grass-like, dark green leaves.It is native to woodland areas in Japan and Korea.
Foliage is similar to that of Liriope (also in the lily family), but leaves are narrower and more refined. Small, 6-tepaled, bell-shaped, white to lilac-tinted flowers bloom in summer in short racemes (2 to 3 long) atop leafless stalks. Flowers are followed by spherical, pea-sized, blue-black berries (1/4 across). Flowers and fruits are usually partially hidden by the foliage.
