I think that Mondo grass is truly beautiful, but it takes forever to clump
up.  You might be better off with a quick growing annual such as Leea
guineenis 'Purple Desire'  (likes sun) or Hemigraphis exotica 'Purple
Waffle' (likes part sun or shade).  Both of these plants are short and dark
leaved, although not grass-like.  I had trouble looking them up as the names
appear differently in my searches.  The leea may be L. coccinea. It never
got more than 8" for me in almost a year.
