The Variegated Liriope (muscari variegata) has long and narrow green dense foliage with contrasting yellow stripes. In late summer this Liriope will develop spikes with purple/lavender spikes that will be followed by dark blue berry-like fruits. This ornamental grass has a clumping growth habit, and once mature can reach 12-15″ tall. Liriope is very adaptable and can thrive in poor soils and dry conditions. Once established it is recommended to mow/trim back your liriope in fall so new fresh foliage can emerge in spring. Variegated Liriope is great when planted as a ground cover or border planting along a flowerbed or sidewalk, and can also be used in container gardens.
Space Your Variegated Liriope (Lilyturf) 10-12 inches apart for a seamless planting. Alternatively, plant them 1+ foot-feet apart to leave space between shrubs.
