Ophiopogon jaburan 'Vittatus' is a rare giant clumping (does not run) mondo grass with irregularly striped green and white leaves...resembling a super-sized clump of liriope. Our 15-year-old clumps are 30" tall x 6' wide. In August, the giant mondo grass clumps are adorned with arching 30" long flower spikes laden with white flowers. After the flowers fade, they are replaced from October through the Christmas holidays with attractive, cobalt blue, jelly bean-like fruit. Ophiopogon jaburan 'Vittatus' is an amazing giant specimen plant in the woodland garden, although the authorities will probably be wanting to test your garden for steroids.
