Ophiopogon japonicus nana ~ Dwarf Mondo Grass

Ophiopogon japonicus nana, is one of the most tidy plants I can think of.  The Dwarf Mondo Grass is spreads very slowly.  I spot plant starts every 3" to get coverage in a reasonable amount of time.  Ophiopogon japonicus nana grows to about 2" tall.  The Dwarf Mondo Grass blooms in the early Summer.  Dwarf Mondo Grass will tolerate some sun, but prefers mid-day shade.  Ophiopogon nana says darker green than the regular species plants in the same exposure. The Dwarf Mondo Grass is hardy to zone 7.
