Tender Ornamental Grasses

Ophiopogon japonicus 'Pamela Harper'

Variegated Mondo Grass
Named after noted plantswoman Pam Harper, this choice selection of Mondo Grass would need a very sheltered spot in zone 6, plus good drainage, but in zone 7 and warmer climates it's a keeper. Creamy yellow variegated narrow leaves form tidy clumps, making a fun textural addition for the front of the mixed border. We like to use it in year round containers.
