This plant will grow in my zone:
Attractive clumps of stemless dark green grass-like leaves make a beautiful small-scale groundcover or low border. Tiny spikes of lilac flowers appear in summer. This care-free, easy to grow perennial is ideal for adding texture to the garden. Evergreen.
|Botanical Name:||Ophiopogon japonicus|
|Special Feature:||Clump Forming, Easy Care, Ornamental Berries|
|Design Ideas:||Despite its name, this is more of a Lily-like plant than a true grass. It is the traditional groundcover of the Japanese garden, planted at the base of pagoda lights and stone basins. A fine groundcover that stays small, it's perfect for entry gardens, courtyards and atriums. Very good as an edge plant for water gardens or arranged at the base of fountains. Plant in small clusters or as a large, irregular shaped mass in Asian gardens. Great for geometric layouts in postmodern and tropical schemes.|
Provide moist, well-drained soil. Best in part shade in hot summer climates. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Clumps may be divided every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
