This evergreen grass is excellent in rock gardens, borders and in mixed containers. It is also a great groundcover and produces many spikes of tiny purple flowers in the summer.
The erect, showy flower spikes resemble grape hyacinth (Muscari). Flowers give way in fall to blackish berries which often persist into winter. Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Liriope prefers moist, fertile soils in partial shade. Mow in early spring to remove old foliage. It is best used as an edging plant or massed as a ground cover. Easy to care for, drought tolerant and clump forming - there are so many reasons to love this plant!
