More About Silver Mist Mondo Grass...

Silver Mist is a Mondo Grass that has attractive silvery-green thin foliage that is striped with cream and grows in a compact tufted form. Short spikes of tiny white flowers are produced but these aren't notable...it's the foliage of this plant that steals the show!

Silver Mist Mondo Grass is a first-class ground cover that forms a lush carpet of grass-like foliage. It is similar in appearance to Silver Dragon Liriope but with much thinner blades that provide a softer texture. It reaches about  6 to 8 inches high about a foot wide or more spreading by underground stems.

Silver Mist Mondo Grass is a perfect plant for medium to full shade conditions and is a great filler for containers and beds. It is a useful groundcover, especially under trees, and is ideal to use for bordering paths, in the front of borders, in rock gardens, and in crevice between boulders around the garden pond.

Mondo grass likes part to full shade, and regular water, especially if planted under the canopies of large shade trees which tend to soak a lot of moisture from the soil. It prefers a moist well-drained soil. Mondo grass can be mowed or sheared in late winter before new growth beings in spring.
