Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens'

I am still unsure if I like this black grass ... but the flowers are pretty!

I have this thanks to last owners. Know what you mean about liking it or not. Flowers are pretty but small aren't they.

I find it very slow growing too Shirley...

Thanks Jen and Motty ... I recall seeing this planted in bright white gravel ... meant to resemble a winding stream and was very effective. No idea where that was though .....

I have this too, and I'm not too sure about it either. I suppose it's ok in that situation Shirley, in a design.

Glad it's not just me, Cinders! Perhaps I should put it in a pot and top it with white stones .....

Waddy, I've just looked at my record to see it was planted in 2013 and only flowered for the first time last year!

All good things come to those who wait ..... :o)

Looks like I'd better wait a bit longer then. Mine have been in only two years...

You must report back to me in 2 years then ... :o)
