Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
This striking evergreen perennial forms clumps of smooth matt-black, grass-like leaves from which rise dainty stems of contrasting mauve flowers in summer. The bell-shaped blooms are followed by dark inky-blue berries which persist throughout winter for added interest. A stunning contrast to any brightly coloured plant, Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens' is hardy and robust, making a wonderful low-maintenance addition to patio containers, rock gardens, woodland gardens or borders. With a spreading habit, Black Lilyturf is particularly useful as a groundcover plant. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 30cm (12"). Supplied in 9cm pots.

Flowering Months
Black Lilyturf requires little aftercare but will appreciate a mulch of leaf mould or garden compost in autumn. Feed and water container-grown Ophiopogon plants throughout the growing season. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps in spring when necessary.
Plant Ophiopogon in moist, fertile, well drained soil with an acid to neutral pH. Choose a final position in borders or patio containers in sun or semi shade. Work in plenty of compost or well rotted manure prior to planting. Plant Black Lilyturf at its original soil level before firming in and watering well to settle the soil.
