(aka: Ophiopogon j. A1K-130) I spotted this unusual mondo grass when making the exhaustive hike over the top of Korea's Ulleung Island in 1997. Unlike most mondos, this plant formed a very narrow leaf clump, to 12" tall x 20" wide, without any sign of a runner. The light lavender flowers of spring give rise to bright blue berries in fall. Although Ophiopogon japonicus is the only species that this could be, it is unlike any Ophiopogon japonicus that I've ever seen. This has great garden potential for the woodland garden where a running mondo is not acceptable.
