What is a sprig? -Also see product page for pictures and information.. ***And------->
A mondo grass (regular) sprig is approximately 6-8 inches tall and has a small root mass at the base. Six to ten blades come out of the base to form a sparse umbrella.

How far apart should I plant the sprigs?
For full coverage, I recommend planting 3-4 inches apart and being patient. (Mondo Grass (all) similar growth and generally doubles each year after becoming established-it sends out sprigs from the root base)

For borders, I recommend planting every 2 inches apart.

Should I plant mondo grass in sun or shade?(Answers refer to all products)


Mondo grass (all types) prefers shade or partial shade. It can be grown in direct sunlight but the blades tend to yellow and the tips may darken-still works well for a driveway or flowerbed border.

Will mondo grass grow in my climate zone?(Answers refer to all products)


All of our products including mondo grass (all types) grows best in zone seven (7) and above. However, it can grow in zones 5 and 6 in protected areas. (For example: up against a house or under a tree). They tend to be more protected from the harsh elements in these areas.

How big is a super-dwarf sprig and how is it usually or best used in landscape gardens?


A super-dwarf sprig only grows to 1 1/2 inches tall and is very thin and sparse. (On the Products page, the picture of super-dwarf mondo grass represents several years growth). It is used as a novelty plant or to fill in between flagstone or bricks.
