Description: Black Grass 'Ophiopogon Black Beard' is an extraordinary looking plant with purple-green leaves that turn jet black when grown in full sun. These leaves are more narrow than other varieties, and arch gracefully outwards and down, making it an ideal plant for dense and unusual ground cover. It looks stunning as border edging or in rock gardens. From July onwards it grows flower spikes up to 14" long with the most extroadinary lilac, bell shaped flowers on the end, which emit an exotic fragrance. As well as giving you these beautiful flowers in summer, come autumn dark, almost black berries appear, keeping your garden exciting all year round.
