This dwarf variety, only half the size of the others, creates a lush ground cover of dense, dark green, grass-like bushes. Excellent as a border plant or hidden in rocks for a nice contrast. Shocking in massive plantations in the landscape. Evergreen leaves.
A smaller version of this lily-like plant. It is the traditional ground cover of the Japanese garden, planted at the base of the lights of the pagodas and the stone sinks. A thin green canopy that stays small, it is perfect for entry gardens, patios and atriums. Very good as a border plant for water gardens or arranged around the base of fountains. Plant as a linear border in formal shade gardens or in small groups in Asian gardens. Ideal for geometric designs in postmodern and tropical schemes.

And the best part? Mondo dwarf grass is low maintenance and drought tolerant, making it ideal for shady areas (not full sun!) And the gardener who wants a beautiful garden without all the hard work.
This low-growing grass species maintains its green color throughout the year and has a very low risk of pests. When actively growing, it is perfect garden decoration in rock gardens to create borders and keep weeds out.
