Project Description

Liriope muscari & spicata: Liriope

-Light Exposure: Part Sun to Full Shade
-Water Req: Moderate
-Height: 1 – 2 ft.
-Growth Rate: Moderate

The 2 varieties of Liriope include Liriope muscari ‘Evergreen Giant’ and the smaller Liriope spicata ‘Creeping Lilyturf’. Both have dark green, grass like blades with the occasional bloom of purple flower spikes usually during the warmer months of summer. Evergreen giant liriope enjoys more sun than other liriopes. Creeping lilyturf enjoys more shade and is not a good choice for bordering a sidewalk or for use as an edging because it spreads too quickly. Use Liriope muscari instead. Cold Tolerant.
