Black Mondo grass Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens') This cultivar was developed in England but the species is from Japan.

It likes partial to full shade, does well from boggy to dryish soil, and when established needs only weekly water. It will send out runners and slowly spread to form a loose "colony" of plants.

I use this plant a lot in SF shade gardens.
