Description
This hardy, clump forming, herbaceous perennial associates beautifully with grasses. Its dainty bell shaped blooms in summer are followed by dark inky-blue berries. Evergreen Lilyturf creates a spectacular feature plant at the front of borders, producing 60% truly black grass-like foliage with the remaining leaves an attractive, darker green shade. Ophiopogon planiscapus ‘Nigrescens’ makes a useful addition to winter containers, adding colour, texture and structure during the coldest months. Height: 20cm (8”). Spread: 30cm (12”).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Ophiopogon plants in any rich, fertile non-alkaline soil in full sun or semi-shade. Lilyturf enjoys reliably moist, but well-drained conditions.
More Info

Lilyturf requires little aftercare but will appreciate a dry mulch of bark chips or leaf mould in autumn. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps in spring when necessary.
