Dwarf Mondo Grass - Ophiopogon japonicus 'Nana'

Regular price $8.99

Perfect for the miniature garden! A favorite miniature grass that grows about 2" tall and slowly spreads on runners. If it's really happy, the tiniest, lavender colored flowers in summer are followed by bright blue berries in the summer that can stay through a mild winter.

Now this is one tough plant. It will take some missed-watering-sessions and will show some dead blades if it's been left too dry for too long. Just pluck the dead blades out carefully, aerate the soil a bit and add water.

Great for indoors with plenty of bright light.

Once or twice a year, depending upon where you are, it'll go a bit dormant and get some brown tips on the blades. I just cut the brown tips off to make it look pretty, wait for the dormant period to end to properly groom it. It'll come back in perfect form, but plants, like us, aren't always at their best at all times but otherwise a really great plant choice.

Dividing: Pots are full and can usually be divided right away. Break-apart the rootball as gently as you can and as much as you can, then you can use a pair of scissors to help cut the roots apart. Every piece of the foliage should have a bulb-type root. Just don't make them too small, the bigger the pieces are, the greater the chance for survival.
