OPHIOPOGON japonicus 'Nanus'
Dwarf Lilyturf, Dwarf Mondo Grass, Japanese Lilyturf
Dwarf lilyturf is an evergreen, creeping, grass-like perennial native to Japan. The cultivar 'Nanus' is particularly dwarf. In summer, short spikes of small, tubular, often lilac-tinged white flowers appear amid the leaves. Dark blue berries follow.
Dwarf lilyturf does best in moist, humusy soil and full to partial sun. Plant it along a walkway or as a bed edge or ground cover, or use it to dress up a container planting.
