Black Mondo Grass adds a striking garden contrast with its purple-green leaves that turn jet black when grown in the full sun. Bell shaped pink flowers make a debut in the summer and are followed by black berries in the fall. Use as this grass-like evergreen in beds, borders, edgings and rock gardens.
