Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens'
A real stonker of a plant, the shiny black leaves must be known by everyone, but are still remarkable.
Comes more or less true from seed - I have a green leaved seedling with a few black streaks through it.
This year, for the first time I have seen some dwarf forms and forms with brown rather than black leaves.
