"Simply irresistible" is the best way to describe Ophiopogon 'Gyoku Ryu', a dwarf mondo grass cultivar with thick, dark green, grass-like foliage that eventually makes a tight mat in even the worst garden conditions. Plant dwarf mondo on 6-12" centers for a wonderful evergreen groundcover. Ophiopogon 'Gyoku Ryu' could best be described as looking like a lush lawn of pre-mowed grass...what a great idea! If that's not enough, the rhizomes of Ophiopogon japonicus have long been used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat inflammation, cardiovascular disease, tumors, and to slow aging. I think I'm going to be rollin' around in the mondo grass this afternoon.
