Ophiopogon malcolmsonii - BSWJ7271

Pot Size: 3 litre
Price: £20.00
From a seed collection I gathered on my third expedition to northern Thailand in 1999 on Doi Chiang Dao the day after I ran into a secret opium field. From a wooded area near the summit I found a colony of a small tufted shade tolerant perennial arising from tuberous roots, growing under a stand of Mahonia chiangdaoensis. An evergreen clump forming perennial that could be grown for its narrow grass-like dark green ribbed leaves to 40cm long. With slender flowering scapes 15 cm tall bearing broad spikes of cup-shaped purple-white flowers soon followed by ovate fruit. Easily grown in part or full shade in a well drained soil, in a site sheltered from freezing winds.
