With its dapper midnight green foliage and tidy habit, we expect to see this charming Japanese native lining garden borders and filling mass shade plantings everywhere we look! Its deep black and dark green bladed leaves are the ideal complementary element to further enhance the vivid colors of its neighboring shrubs, trees and flowers. This intriguing groundcover is mostly renowned for its leaves, but its flowers, while small, are still lovely as their pale pink blooms beautify the summer scene. Perfect for accenting damp shady areas, this grass won't disappoint and acts as reliable color statement, especially in milder climates where it is considered evergreen. This easy to care for plant is also incredibly low maintenance because it is cold hardy and tolerant of drought, heat, and humidity. It is even pest and disease resistant. You can't go wrong with this thrilling dark foliage that contrasts beautifully with vibrant neighbors!
