Ophiopogon planescapus 'Nigrescens'

Often mistaken for a grass, this classy perennial is actually a member of the asparagus family. Its jet black, evergreen strappy leaves make it a perfect partner for silver leaved plants or for edging paving. Does well in part shade. Purple flowers in mid-summer.
