|Design Ideas||Mondo grass is the traditional groundcover of the Japanese garden, planted at the base of pagoda lights and stone basins. Perfect for entry gardens, courtyards and atriums. Very good as an edge plant for water gardens or arranged around the base of fountains. Plant as a linear edging in formal shade gardens or in small clusters in Asian gardens. Great for geometric layouts in postmodern and tropical schemes.|
|Companion Plants||Coral Bells (Heuchera); Ligularia (Ligularia); Hosta (Hosta); Lungwort (Pulmonaria); Bleeding Heart (Dicentra)|
|Care||Thrives in humus-rich, evenly moist, well-drained soils. Avoid harsh sun exposures. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. For a tidy appearance, remove old, faded foliage and apply fertilizer in early spring.|
