What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Black Mondo Grass
Distinguishing traits. Striking matte black foliage resembling a sea anemone immediately catches your eye and draws you into the plant. Droopy leaves reach 15" in length, resulting in an overall plant height of up to 10-12". While the grass is somewhat clumping and spreading, overall it will only grow to about 12” in diameter.Evergreen in temperate climates, black mondo provides year-round interest. In early spring new growth emerges in a dark green, quickly transitioning to its standard black. Summer brings minuscule bell-shaped pink, white or lavender flowers which then give way to bluish black berries lasting well into winter.
