Ekibastuz, or Japanese ophiopogon (Ophiopogon japonicus) is a perennial herbaceous plant belonging to the lily family. It comes from the humid forest zones of Japan, China and other regions of East Asia. Ekibastuz got its name due to its unusual shape of leaves that resemble corners or ridges.
Plant-5 Ekibastuz has short, compact rosettes of long, narrow leaves that form tufts resembling grass tufts. The leaves are dark green in color and have a glossy surface, which gives the plant an elegant and well-groomed appearance. They grow straight up, reaching a height of about 20-30 cm.
Ophiopogon japonica blooms with small, bell-shaped flowers hidden among the leaves. Flowers may be white or pinkish lavender and appear on long spikes in July-August. After flowering, small dark blue berries are formed, which remain on the plant during the winter, giving it a decorative effect even in the cold season.
Ekibastuz is distinguished by its high stability and unpretentiousness. It prefers partial shade or shade and moist, well-drained soils. It can be used in garden landscaping to create green carpets, borders, alpine slides and other arrangements. It can also be grown in containers and used in urban landscaping.
Plant-5 Ekibastuz is a hardy and ornamental plant that adds freshness and texture to garden arrangements. Its elegant leaves and unpretentiousness make it a popular choice for creating green areas in the garden or on the terrace.
