Small narrow garden behind a family house with an even smaller fish pond in a village in the middle of Europe. It's a great place to relax.

I bought this #ophiopogon one month ago, divided into two parts and planted in the border of my #rockgarden and it immediately began to prepare for flowering. Really surprised and looking forward to the first #mondograss #flowering

I love this plant. You should take a look at Pauline’s garden. She uses it really effectively as an edging 😍@pauline33

Good news Richard 👍 I planted them in full sun and hope will not be a big problem. But if I remember well, you have a good experience with it, don't you? @richard.spicer.7906

Not much actually but I acquired some via college that I attend as we were practising division, and now I’ve ended up with 6 clumps 😀 - hoping to create a nice edging in the front garden. Pauline has a very nice edging in her garden if I recall 👌🏼 @pauline33

My grass gets sun all day Ben and there's part of it under my Yews in shade and it copes with the Scottish winters unaffected by any weather conditions that's why I love it 👌😍 @richard.spicer.7906 😊

Thank you very much Richard. I'll ask Pauline, she seems to be the most competent person if all referring to her 😉 @richard.spicer.7906 @pauline33

Thanks a lot Pauline, that sounds very good to me and my Ophiopogon too 😉👍 It has on the label full sun to partial shade, I planted it on full sun and then I read somewhere that full sun could be a problem for it. This is why I tried to find someone with real experience and fortunately I found you. Yuppie!!! 😁 Btw, today I found on the plent on the picture tiny germ of another inflorescence 😇👍
