Shade garden - Black Mondo Grass. I absolutely LOVE this stuff. Imagine it growing as a border for flowering plants with bright colors. Also makes a great mass planting surrounded by a stone border. Or in planters or flower boxes for contrast.

'Silver Shimmers', (zones 4 to 9) is a stunner for shaded areas. This plant thrives in woodland conditions, with moist, rich, well-drained soil in shade, and grows 1 to 2 feet tall and wide. Give it a site with good air circulation, as some Pulmonaria are prone to mildew, though I've never seen it on this variety. It blooms blue in spring.
