Ophiopogon Japonicus

Ophiopogon Silver Edge Silver Edge™ Ophiopogon is a variegated mondo grass, that generally keeps remarkably clean foliage. A few years back another common form of variegated mondo was released, but it easily got rust, and looked terrible for much of the year. Silver Edge™ Ophiopogon is much cleaner.

Silver Edge™ Ophiopogon is useful for adding a colourful low maintenance border to a garden. Standard Mondo is a very popular plant, because it simply works as a border, so now you can add Silver Edge™ Ophiopogon to the list of functional border plants.

Ophiopogon Silver Edge Silver Edge™ Ophiopogon is a very low maintenance plant, but like normal Mondo, it benefits from trimming every 2 or so years.
