Mondo grass and black walnut trees

Asked October 4, 2017, 10:22 AM EDT

Considering planting mundo grass in various locations in our PG County yard. Is this invasive, or can I use it as needed? Also, will it grow under black walnut trees?

Mondo grass is a slow-growing groundcover and is not considered invasive.
This page, from the Missouri Botanical Garden suggests that it is juglone resistant and can tolerate growing near black walnuts:
