Looking for a handsome groundcover to enliven your landscape? Look no farther than Mondo grass, which has dense tufts of grassy foliage, often boldly striped, and spikes of flowers reminiscent of grape hyacinth. Mondo grass plants provides elegant edging; they can be grouped as accents or planted close together as a groundcover. Be alert for slug damage in damp areas. Provide moist, humus-rich soil that does not dry out.
The round bright yellow leaves of golden creeping Jenny are dramatic against the strappy almost-black leaves of black Mondo grass in sun or light shade.Japanese painted fern
Japanese painted fern has fronds variegated with gray and different shades of pink-purple. When it's planted with black Mondo grass, each picks up color from the other to good effect.Astilbe
In lightly shaded places, the dissected leaves and fluffy plumes of astilbe flowers complement Mondo grass. They enjoy similar conditions.
