This unusual selection of mondo grass has muted white and green striped narrow leaves, brighter in early spring, then fading to a more subtle pattern during the summer. Large patches of O. 'Aritaki' in a woodland garden are quite spectacular. Even if you don't like mondo grass... buy this one for the name!
