Description

Black Mondo Grass is a plant for our fun and funky customers looking for something completely different! It is a cool compliment to Black Elephant Ears or Black Diamond Crape Myrtles if you have a real taste for the depth and richness of gothic landscaping! This grass-like perennial has pretty white-lavender flowers during the summer months and lovely deep purple berries in fall. Dwarf Black Mondo Grass is resistant to pests and disease, low maintenance, and can be grown almost anywhere in the US. Growing to about 8 inches tall and up to 12 inches wide, Black Mondo grass is a distinctive addition to any landscape!

How To Care

Black Mondo grass is a clumping perennial grass that is extremely easy to care for. Be sure to plant your Mondo grass in growing zones 5 to 10. This plant grows well in full sun to part shade and is adaptable to a variety of soils as long as they drain well. Water deeply once or twice weekly when newly planted to help the roots grow properly. After establishment (about 3 months or so) this grass is drought tolerant. Keep your Dwarf Black Mondo grass watered in extreme heat, especially in the first summer. Fertilize with a slow release, balanced fertilizer in spring for optimal growth. For a cleaner look, prune back your grass to about 2 inches prior to new spring growth. Mondo grass rarely has issues with pests. Disease is also rare unless this grass is grown in wet conditions. Black Mondo Grass is deer, rabbit, pollution, and salt tolerant.

interesting!

Got what i ordered, kind of. i ordered 6 - 1 gallon black mondo grasses. i got 6 black mondo grasses, they were probably the maturity of a gallon size plants but they came in 2.5 qt. pots with little to no dirt. they were also all cut back to about 1.5" tall. i'm sure they will be good or even great after some time and attention.
