Season of Interest
Flowering in Summer Foliage all year round
Keep your Ophiopogon Japonicus in an environment where it can receive partial to full sun on a daily basis.
The Ophiopogon prefers constant watering each week and more during the hot season.
Best Growing Conditions
Grow ophiopogon in moist, but well-drained soil. It prefers the slightly acidic, fertile, humus-rich soil typical of shady woodland areas. Choose a spot in full sun or partial shade. The black foliage varieties will darken more in a sunny location. Although ophiopogon will spread, if you’re planting up an area under a tree or in a container, use several plants to get an immediate effect. Add a little leaf mould or a handful of ericaceous compost and mix well before planting, firming in and watering.
