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. 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 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. Mondo Grass is deer, rabbit, pollution, and salt tolerant.

Black mondo grass

My plants arrived in excellent condition, very healthy and ready to plant. I have put one in a large pot that will be great contrast to the asparagus fern and coleus I usually plant. Two are alternating with the pink muhli grasses I also purchased. Looking forward to the views next year

Outstanding transaction!

Excellent! Plants arrived in excellent packaging, carefully packed to protect the foliage and root systems. I ordered 5 to augment the sample one I tried to see whether black mondo would work in my courtyard. It did, so now I have 6. They are all thriving, and expanding nicely into their space. Thank you! I’ll be back.

Black Mondo Grass

Plants arrived healthy and beautiful. I grew this in Seattle for over 30 years and just moved back to MA, nice to have an old friend in my new yard!
