Everything about: Black Lilyturf

Black Lilyturf, Black Dragon, Ebony Knight - Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens' (latin)

Area of origin: Japan and Korea.
Adult dimensions: Height: up to 35 cm (13.8").
Foliage: Evergreen.
Soil: Humus-rich, cool and well drained. Chalky soil unsuitable.
Hardiness: Frost hardy up to -15°C.
Position: Shade to full sun.
Plantation density: 9 / m².


Properties and uses:
This hardy plant is ideal for creating contrasts whether planted in open ground or in pots. Its almost black foliage sections off rockeries or efficiently defines edges of flowerbeds. It spreads slowly via its underground stems which produce buds above soil (rhizomes). It is worth noting that the Black Lilyturf can support light pedestrian traffic.
Its small pinky-white blooms appear discreetly in summer amongst the foliage. Their delicate bell-shaped flowers are similar to those of 'lily of the valley'. The small oval berries that are produced, turn blue/black when mature and contain a toxic seed.
