Liriope – Variegated Lilyturf
One of the our most popular groundcovers, Variegated Lilyturf, Liriope, makes an ideal choice for low maintenance and great looks. It easily grows just about anywhere, in most soils, in full sun to part shade, to even dark shade. Tufts of grass-like green foliage with creamy yellow margins grow 12-20″ tall. In late summer to early fall spikes of lavender flowers appear. Drought tolerant and resists deer and rabbits.
Variegated Lilyturf’s compact foliage makes it a top choice for containers and edging. It’s fantastic in formal beds, as an edger, and cottage, pollinator, and cutting gardens. Variegated Lilyturf works well massed or grouped in shady and woodland gardens. Spectacular landscapes can be created by using them with other perennials. You can create a fantastic look mixing them with Asilbe and Hosta in a shade bed.
Plant in sun to shade locations in soil that has been amended with organic mater. It prefers moist soil but is very tolerant of tough conditions. Although drought tolerant it benefits from deep soakings during dry spells. Mow or cut down previous years foliage in early spring.
