Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens' AGM

  • Pot size: 9cm
  • Plant size: 15cm (6in)
  • Growing condition: Partial - full shade
  • Flowering season: June to July

The black grass, lovely in a pot or as a mass underplant, for wonderful contrast. Pale lilac flowers in July-August and shiny black berries in Autumn and narrow arching black leaves throughout the year. A very good candidate for a Winter container perhaps with snowdrops and the stems of a brightly coloured Cornus. Evergreen (everblack!) and clump forming.

{About}
We were asked for sweet woodruff so often that we now grow it. Mythical thug for a shady spot where it can spread and display its fragrant white flowers in Spring. Will tolerate dry soils. It was used most effectively as ground cover in a small, shady courtyard show garden at Chelsea 2012, and can be seen at Mottisfont forming a wonderful ground cover under a fig tree.
{Cultivation}
Galium will spread quite vigorously. So a plant that will survive in difficult situations.
