wanted: have: mondo grass (triangle)

dawgie(z7NC)May 6, 2006

I dug up a 6'x4' patch of Mondo grass today to make room for a new hosta bed. I don't want to go through the trouble of mailing it, but if someone in Triangle could use some Mondo grass, send me an email. I plan to transplant some of it to other places in my yard, but will still have a lot of it leftover. It makes a very nice groundcover for shady areas, and will gradually fill in to make a dense mat that is not invasive. It's the dark green variety, about 6" in height, with a nice weeping form. Not to be confused with liriope. I live in North Raleigh off Durant Road.

What I have is Ophiopogon japonicus, usually called Mondo grass. What you are talking about (I think), is Hakone grass, Hakonechloa macra. I don't have any of that to trade.

Any left? I would like to try it in a shady area, if it is still available. I live nearby in North Raleigh.
Thanks either way!

Jean -- Yes, I still have some Mondo grass left. It's been sitting bareroot now for about a week or so, but it's in a shady area and we've had several rains, so it should be OK. Send me an email if interested.

OK, I'm sure the grass is all gone by now but if not please send me an email. I'm in Raleigh and would be able to pick it up Monday or Tuesday at the latest. I don't care what kind of mongo grass it is. Need all I can get.
