Avril O Leary asked 11 years ago

I recently bought a plant in a local garden centre and im not sure what the plant is. The gardener said it was a black lily but ive looked it up on the internet and it doesn’t look like one. I would like to know what the plant is and how to look after it.Thanks AOL93

This is the black mondo grass, Ophipogon planiscapus ‘Nigrescens’, also sometimes called ‘black lilyturf’. 

It is related to lilies and to lily-of-the-valley.
