Bad-Hair-Day Mondo Grass. Tony Avent of Plant Delights Nursery adopted this common name for this unusual species of Mondograss, which is most appropriate. It grows much like Ophiopogon japonicus, but its leaves seem to grow in every direction possible to create a somewhat tangled mass. It grows to about 6" in height and spreads by underground rhizomes. It does well in shade to part sun and an average soil which isn't allowed to get bone dry. It's small white flowers produce electric blue berries in the fall and winter.
