Dwarf Mondo Grass is an excellent evergreen groundcover between stepping stones because it has good tolerance for moderate foot traffic. The delicate strap-like leaves are dark green and very uniform. This plant is a good grass-like substitute for lawns in shady areas. Dwarf Mondo Grass is very useful for water run off in shade, as well as water absorption on shady green roofs. A member of the Asparagus family (as you can tell by the occasional blue fruit).
