Hoddo...I too like Mondo...your garden looks very interesting....I know many people believe Mondo to be a little invasive...but I personally have never had any problems with it...thin it our from time to time & re-use it elsewhere...in fact I noticed it in the nursery the other day for $4.95 for the smallest amount :shock:

I didn't have any problems with my (dwarf) mondo being invasive - the ducks ate it :?

Mine jumped a root barrier to get into the garden, but I do agree it'll be easy to get out and relocate. I've just been lazy.

Love the mondo look - I guess it frosts :?:
I have tried it & think it was sensitive to my salty water but not really sure why it passed away :? Had it in a pot.

Thanks all for the compliments. Midgin yes we do have it around other gardens, as Patricia says its a bit invasive but easy to thin out and replant. Tilly this is the rear of our house. Greenleaves do you mean is it affected by frost? Dosent seem to be but I have noticed it will die quite quickly in a pot if it dries out for too long.. in the ground it is very hardy. Thee here's a peek up the path towards the front of the house

Yeah Hoddo ~ just love your latter photo. Certainly give it a new post :!:

Yes we get a few good frost but maybe ok if in protected area?
It looks to be in a shady spot here, H.? Does it need much sun? My minds going ~ I think I have a spot for it - to edge a palm/tropical environment we have in the making.
