Liriope

Liriope muscari

Lilyturf, Big blue lilyturf, border grass

About This Plant

Part or full shade; evergreen, with dark green lily- or grass-like spreading foliage. Various sizes and cultivars are available. Liriope is a stalwart in the irrigated shade garden, making a nice low-maintenance filler texture in formal landscapes. It’s especially useful around live oaks, where it is too dark for grass. The flowers are inconspicuous.

Origins: East Asia

Maintenance

None typically required. Can be cut back as needed, but it’s better to pick-prune as ragged leaf edges can be unsightly for a long time.

An evergreen perennial with strappy dark green foliage.
