Liriope spicata

Creeping Lilyturf

Versatile and easy to grow, thriving in shade, partial sun, and sun in cool climates, the only maintenance Lilyturf requires is a complete "haircut" in late winter and protection from snails. The white or purple flowers resemble the spikes of large Grape Hyacinths and last well as cut flowers. Use these grasslike perennials as small-scale ground cover, edging and as accents around pools, dry stream beds and rock gardens. Can be grown indoors. Available in containers year-round. Cut back when foliage looks shaggy, and divide before new growth starts in spring.
