PRO Bliss Garden Design Hi Isabelle - the dark grass is black mondo grass....actually not a grass, but in the lily turf family - botanical is Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens'. The tree is Acer palmatum 'Iijima sunago' and that is the fall color. July 14, 2015 Write a comment cehidalgo wrote:September 9, 2015 Black Rock - Where can I buy the black rock? I am in Los Angeles.
