Mondo grass is used as an ornamental grass, which has a rich dark green color giving your garden or lawn a luxurious carpet look.  It is the best plant for your lawn walkway as it is soft and fills the gaps in the pavements. It is a slow grower and requires little maintenance, but once it is full grown, it will be attractive. It is sometimes used in aquariums. It can be grown on wide varieties of soils and requires partial to full shade of sun. The plant produces blue colored seeds that look like blue berries. A must for any garden.
