The Q&A Archives: MONDO GRASS

Question: At a recent seminar on grass cover, MONDO GRASS was suggested as the best for our area. Questions arose for such name, so I volunteered to say that the word MONDO, Italian for World, was probably chosen to indicate that this type of grass could be used everywhere.
I promised to have the correct answer at the next seminar.
Am I right? Thank you and best regards. Andrew Rossi

Answer: Andrew,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

I am not sure why they named that plant mondo but it is indeed widely adapted.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
