Liriope, Liriope muscari, is also commonly called border grass and is not actually a grass but a member of the lily family, a fact that inspires another of its common names, Lilyturf, Blue Lillyturf and Bigblue Liriope.. The dark green, ribbon-like foliage grows in length from 12 to 18 in and then recurves toward the ground to form rounded clumps. As the clumps mature they merge into a continuous carpet that resembles a plot of shaggy lawn grass. In summer, spikes of small purple, violet or white flowers rise from the center of clumps. Flowers are followed by pea-sized black or white berries in autumn. Liriope spreads quite fast in reasonable soil, creating a substantial tuberous root mass. This plant is a true survivor and will grow almost anywhere. This perennial evergreen should be sheared back in the early spring to enjoy a flush of new growth.
Scientific Name : Liriope muscari
