Plant: Lilyturf (Liriope muscari) |
aka Monkey Grass. I received two nice rooted pieces of this Liriope in a swap on 10/13/09. The variegation is more gold and green than the usual cream and green. We’ll see if that is the same in the spring.
Variegated Liriope – Lilyturf has unique bluish-white flower spikes 18" tall in July/August followed by dark blue-black berries in September/October. Variegated Liriope Lilyturf is an almost foolproof plant that endures heat, drought, salty seashore conditions, full sun or heavy shade. Plant 12" apart. Zones 4-10.
