Ophiopogon ‘Hosoba Kokuryu’

For sale by Shrubland Park Nurseries

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

A new form of the deservedly popular 'Black Grass', with very narrow black leaves making a slowly spreading clump. The leaves are held more upright than O. planiscapus 'Nigrescens', giving it a tidier, neater appearance. Ideal for the front of a sunny or partly shaded border, on a rockery or would look great in a shallow container with other plants or by itself.
