This mondo grass comes from a Crug Farm collection at 7000' elevation on Alishan (Ali Mountain), Taiwan. The thread-like, light green 5" long foliage makes a slowly spreading patch (3' wide in 4 years). Ophiopogon formosanus looks texturally unique from other small mondo grasses that we have grown. The patches are topped with short racemes of white flowers in summer, followed by large blue fruit. While all mondos are great for shade, we have found that Ophiopogon formosanus performs best in light shade or with a couple of hours of morning sun.
