Although Mondo grass looks similar to Liriope, they are actually different plants entirely. Where as liriope can take the sun, and popular varieties grow as clumps, mondo grass is a slower growing, spreading grass with thinner grass-like leaves. Dwarf mondo grass is very low growing and perfect for placing between stepping or patio stones. Both regular and dwarf mondo work well massed in big areas of shade gardens as a textural contrast to big leafed shade plants such as hostas and work well to surround the harshness of boulder groupings or accents. Plant in moist, fertile, well-drained soil. Most mondo grass varieties have dark green foliage but there are several black leaved varieties that work well in combination planters. Mondo grass blooms similarly to liriope, in mid-summer, however, the blooms are not as showy.
