Liriope - Lily Turf

Though Liriope is not a true grass, we're including it here because of it's grass-like qualities.

Liriope, an evergreen perennial, is actually in the Lily family. Mature height is usually from 8 inches to 18 inches. Flowers usually in shades of blue may be clustered around upright spikes, depending upon the species. Flowers are followed by small black berries with an opalescent sheen. If someone asks me to recommend a low-maintenance, lush, evergreen ground cover or border for full sun to partial shade that tolerates a wide range of soil conditions, I ask, Have you tried Liriope?
