Ocimum labiatum is a fast-growing, many branched, semi-deciduous shrub with aromatic heart-shaped leaves.

The plant may be cut back to one-third of its height every couple of years to rejuvenate the woody growth.

Ophiopogon planiscapus Nigrescens

Ophiopogon planiscapus

Black Mondo grass, Black Lilyturf, Snakebeard
Family: Asparagaceae   (Formerly:Ruscaceae)
Subfamily: Nolinoideae
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersBlue/lavender/purple flowersOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Herbaceous perennial that forms tufted mounds; similar in appearance to Liriope, but the attraction here is the black foliage. Flowers are lavender, blue, pink or whitish; seed-bearing fruits are black.

Grow this novelty as a grasslike groundcover, for border edging, in a rock garden or in containers.

Full sun to partial shade is recommended, but part shade is probably the best place for it to hold its unique coloring. Soils should be kept moist and be of a sandy or loamy composition. An acidic or neutral soil pH is best.

Hardiness: USDA Hardiness Zones 5-9.
