Can you imagine ? This is a close up of it growing.
I mean, this looks as though someone hand painted a bit of gold on it. But it is just growing.....
So wild. So green.
I think this grouping of black bamboo would look fabulous bordered with black mondo grass.
This is black mondo grass. It is normally used as a border, but it can also be placed in a planter. Then it looks a bit like a Phyllis Diller wig. Which I love.
This is a typical application. See it along the grass ?
This is what it looks like when it blooms. It doesn't get very tall , about 6" high is all.
See how it is growing in this planter? If you were to have a large shallow planter ( round or rectangular), it will grow all the same height, and evenly. Do this in a planter on an outdoor cocktail, or dining table.....you will be quite pleased.
This Black Mondo grass is so inspiring that artists have painted it. I think it is unexpected, and can be a show stopper if it is used in the right application. It seems to just accentuate what ever else it is in, or with. It can be another design tool. And unexpected .
