Brad's survival guide

Just a little off the top then, love?

Those of us at Plantsome HQ haven’t had a bad hair day since Brad’s been in the house. Fresh out of the Aveda Institute, Brad will groom each of your hairs with tender love and care. And if it’s beyond saving? Well, that’s what razors are for. We love Brad despite his (sometimes ruthless) critique, but it’s nice to have someone tell it like it is when plant parenthood takes precedence. Despite his constant gum popping, it’s never landed in our hair… and that’s a win in our books.

How to care for Brad

The Ophiopogon Planiscapus Nigrescens, or Black Mondo Grass, AKA Brad, is an awesome addition to any garden with its beautiful purple-black foliage. Low-growing, these tufts spread outwards and make a great base for landscaping projects, or for garden coverage. The Black Mondo Grass is an easy-care garden plant that will do well in full sun or partial shade. They like evenly moist soil, so be sure to water it at least once a week! This plant will form pink blooms in late spring to early summer as well—what more could you ask for?!
