Ophiopogon planiscapus ‘Nigrescens’

Flowers just emerging …

This is a delightful little evergreen perennial which will spread by forming new clumps.  It has distinctive black grass-like leaves and racemes of lilac flowers in the summer.  Flowers are followed by small black fruits (inedible).  It grows to a height of 23cm and will spread to 30cm.  It is easy to divide and replant around the garden.  I have just re-potted a small clump for display on the toolshed.
