| Choosing the right border
Mini mondo is a dwarf border that never grows taller than 10cm. It spreads quickly and forms a very dense slightly curly looking rich green border which will never grow taller than 10cm. The mini mondo can be planted in front of a low hedge to create a layered effect or planted as a border around low growing plants that you dont wish to have dwarfed by your border.
Tall mondo grass is a finer straighter leaved mondo than the mini mondo which grows to a maximum height of 30cm. It spreads very quickly and forms a dense evergreen border with a soft look that goes with anything from a cottage garden to a lush tropical garden full of palms & birds of paradise to a formal garden or a contemporary modern landscape.
Bongo Borders® Liriope borders grow to a maximum height of 90cm. Their rich green strap like leaves form a very full and attractive border which spread quickly and give the feeling of luxuriance. Bongo Borders® Liriope goes well with all kinds of garden styles. Use it as a tall to medium border in a series of layered borders.
Tall mondo grass works well in conjunction with Bongo Borders® Liriope as it grows to about 30% as tall as the Bongo Borders® Liriope and has a contrasting texture.
