Planting and care
|Partial to full shade, but can withstand full sun in cooler areas, if they receive sufficient water.||Well-draining, slightly acidic soil (pH 5.5-6.5).||Water regularly and deeply. Twice a week in summer will be more than enough unless it is excessively hot.||It is frost hardy to -5C.||A light application of a balanced fertilizer or a top dressing of compost in the spring.|
Ornamental use: The calming effect of mondo grasses makes them excellent fillers around accent plants such as cycads, and they are equally charming as border plants in the front of flower beds.
