Dramatic Groundcover Makes a Bold Statement

Ultra-modern design sensibilities require a streamlined visual approach that delivers high impact. Nothing fussy or intricate. No unwanted extras. Just pure, simple form done exquisitely well.

Mondo Grass has always been a modern favorite for use as a groundcover with its long, strappy leaves and mounded habit. Admit it. You've seen them used as edging around fabulous pool decks looking like A-list movie stars against the spare, lean architecture in glossy magazines and felt more than a little jealous.

Well guess what? It's time to show off your style to the world! Black Beard Mondo Grass (Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Black Beard' 'Yapard') gives you that look you want, but now it's even bigger and bolder than ever before.

Black Beard is excellent in containers and is the perfect short formal edging plant. Use it as a massed "monoculture" groundcover for the ultimate Zen oasis. With deeply dark foliage, this is an incredible selection to place alongside contemporary buildings and highlight modern sculpture or reflecting pools.

For special pricing on bulk orders, please contact our Sales Team directly at 888-864-7663. Otherwise, please place your order through our site, but hurry!

  • Incredibly dark foliage
  • Appealing mounded form
  • Modern look
  • Easy care
