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.
