Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Black Dragon'


Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Black Dragon' Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Black Dragon'

CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A dense evergreen, low-growing slowly spreading broad leaved grass-like plant, with bold black foliage. The small cream flowers in small clusters in summer are followed by large blue-black berries which are attractive when found hidden under the foliage. It is slowly spreading via short rhizomes so acts more like a clumping plant. Prefers shade. Lovely planted as an edging or in a pot.
