Description

More sun tolerant than the average Liriope, the Super Blue is a hardy ground cover grass that is prized for its variety of landscape uses and showy violet flower spikes.

Also known as monkey grass or lily turf this grass is traditionally used in landscapes as a low-growing mass planting. Use it along sidewalks or edges of gardens to provide a gorgeous textural element that blooms in the spring. Use to fill gaps between plants as a natural barrier against weeds and much showier filler than mulch. This versatile ground cover grows well in harder-to-grow places such as slopes, along driveways, or filling in gaps between shrubs where light can be hard to come by.

Super Blue Liriope is armed with strappy blue-green foliage and can get up to 20" tall. From Summer to early Fall, this grass produces delicate violet flower stalks that emerge from the center of the clump on the end of tall green stems. This lily turf has the showiest blooms among Liriope. After the spring bloom, the flowers are replaced by glossy purple-black fruits on each stem, giving yet another season of visual interest to your landscape.

Plant this heat and drought tolerant ground cover grass in moist, loamy soil for best results. Fertilize in the spring. It is heat tolerant and drought tolerant. Once established it requires very little maintenance.

Care & Use

Getting Started: Understanding Your New Plant

Review your plant's information on our website or the tag that comes with it. Be mindful of sunlight preferences, soil type, and spacing needs.

Our plants are adaptable but grow best in the correct USDA Zones. Click here to learn more about your USDA Zone.

Planting Instructions

Dig a Hole

First, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball of your plant. This makes it easier for the root system to spread out quickly. Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with or slightly above the ground around it.

Amend Your Soil

Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth. If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of Pine Bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of your soil.

Place Your Plant

Examine the roots. If they appear tightly bound, gently coax them apart; this ensures they can spread into the new soil. Place your plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil—Backfill around it with the amended soil mixture. The roots need access to oxygen for your plant to thrive, so do not cover the rootball; place soil around it.

Mulch Your Plants

Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture. Be careful not to cover the rootball - your new plants roots need access to oxygen.

Water Your Plant

Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated. Develop a regular watering schedule based on your plant's needs and local weather patterns. Remember, over watering is just as, if not more, harmful than under watering.

Spacing Recommendations

How to Space Your Super Blue Liriope

For seamless mass plantings such as borders, pathway edging, or filling a space in the garden, space your Blue grass 8-12 inches apart.

For more space between plantings to feature its mounding habit, plant them 20-24 inches apart.
