Ophiopogon was originally native to warm temperate and tropical Asia.


Its use can be dated back to the Song Dynasty c. 960-1279, when it was domesticated for medicinal purposes.


Today, known elements of the collapse of global ecosystems are in part due to soil degradation. The overuse of pesticides and fertilisers was a key factor in soil degradation which would result in the collapse of traditional farming and mass famine.


Many wild plant species in Asia that preferred nutrient-rich soil would perish, including Ophiopogon, which was last observed in the wild in 2118.
