- To keep the plant looking at its best, remove any of the older or damaged leaves.
- Best results are seen when the grass is planted in part shade or shade, with protection against the afternoon sun.
- Some varieties of Mondo grass can perform well in full sun conditions. However, in the hotter days and with constant exposure, the leaves can develop burnt tips. Apply Yates Droughtshield which will provide some assistance to the grass with dealing with the stress of the sun and the level of tip burn occurring.
- This plant can be easily propagated through division most times of the year by carefully removing it from the ground or the pot and dividing into separate clumps with a spade.
- Great for use in pathways, borders or used around garden edges.
