I think this clump of Ophiopogon is finally starting to get thicker. It’s taken a while, nice a glossy looking in the rain #Ophiopogon #ophiopogon-planiscapus #ophiopogonplaniscapus #ophiopogonplaniscapusnigrescens #blackmondograss

And another Ange 😄👍🏼👌🏼 - I actually have some orange tulips around these but they haven’t been the best quality. Princess Irene, I might dig them up this year after they’ve flowered and change it for another one in the autumn @anges

Nice to see this clump of Ophiopogon filling out nicely - it’s been in the ground for 7 months now. Seems to like my full sunny position, although I did put a good size mulch around it to stop the soil losing too much moisture #foliage #black #blackfoliage #ophiopogon #ophiopogon-planiscapus #ophiopogonplaniscapusnigrescens #blackmondograss

It is such a fabulous plant. Have you seen how @pauline33 uses it to edge her paths? 😍😍

I did Jacqueline/Pauline, they look great as a border edge. I might try that in my small front border. Although will try and let it get bigger first and divide them naturally over the next couple of years - I got some orange tulips planted along the edges that will hopefully look super as they come up through the foliage 👌🏼 @awomanonabike @pauline33
