Unsure of the species of this plant, purchased at the Morris Arboretum plant sale; it may be Ophiopogon japonicus 'Silver Mist' (in which case I should be prepared to lose it over winter, since it's hardy only to zone 7). In any case, it's a more striking plant than the black mondo grass we've grown off and on, with its green-and-white variegation along the grassy leaves.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
