Ophiopogon Niger

Regular price €8.95

Ophiopogon Niger, commonly known as Black Mondo Grass, is an eye-catching perennial plant that adds a touch of elegance to gardens in the Irish climate. With its dark foliage and unique texture, it is a sought-after choice for gardening.

Height/Spread: Ophiopogon Niger typically grows to a height of 6-8 inches (15-20 centimeters) with a spread of 12-18 inches (30-45 centimeters). Its compact size makes it suitable for various garden spaces in the Irish climate.

Position: This plant thrives in partially shaded to shaded areas, making it a perfect fit for gardens in Ireland. It is best placed in locations that receive filtered light or morning sunlight, while being protected from intense afternoon sun exposure.

Soil: Ophiopogon Niger prefers well-draining soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH. It adapts well to a variety of soil types in the Irish climate, but it thrives when the soil is enriched with organic matter and kept consistently moist.

Flowering Season: While Ophiopogon Niger is not primarily known for its flowers, it produces small spikes of pale pink to white blooms in mid to late summer. However, it is the plant's striking black foliage that truly steals the show and adds visual interest to the garden.

Uses: Ophiopogon Niger is a versatile plant that serves multiple purposes in Irish gardens. Its dark, grass-like foliage creates a dramatic contrast with surrounding plants, making it an ideal choice for borders, edging, or as a ground cover. It also thrives in containers, allowing gardeners to create visually striking displays on patios or balconies. Additionally, Ophiopogon Niger works well in rock gardens, woodland settings, or as an accent plant in Japanese-style gardens.
