Lily Turf 'Aztec Grass' {50 Bare Root plants}

Silvery white and green variegated foliage sways softly in breezes and shimmers in sun like thousands of tiny spears making Aztec Grass a prized perennial. In the summer, Aztec yields spikes of pearly-white miniature, bell-shaped flowers.

Easy to grow, Aztec Grass features 1/2 inch wide leaves, a tufted stoloniferous growth habit, and clumping form. Her bright, variegated foliage is a wonderful contrast to dark, shaded areas creating an airy sense of lighted candles.

With her moderate growth rate and pest-free nature, Aztec fills a large space with a silver blanket of grass that never requires mowing or trimming. As a border or edging, Aztec is a flowing, moving boundary that provides delightful visual interest.

Gardener Tips
It is not as cold hardy as other Liriopes, so keep it protected until well established.

Pair with any of our darker varieties of Ajuga, and a mixture of daylilies, for a lush, delightful blend of color and foliage.

If you are considering purchasing this plant in bare root form, please read about bare root plants (especially the paragraph about bare root grasses) so you know what to expect.
General information about Liriope muscari (Lily Turf):
With slim spears of foliage, Liriope muscari is not only a lush perennial, it is often a gardener’s best solution. Perfect for banks, beds and at the base of trees where roots will not permit grass to grow, Liriope muscari proves virtually indestructible in stubborn areas.

They tolerate drought, heat, humidity, slopes and moist areas and deer tend to avoid them. Outstanding for erosion control and choking out weeds, Liriopes also gracefully fill those shady, dry spots where nothing else grows.

Liriopes are the perfect living border, creating stately outlines for formal gardens, and in southern gardens, when other plants wilt, they thrive. Of course Liriopes are famous as low-maintenance turf substitutes, and with the exception of Big Blue and Liriope spicata (both are creepers), they stay in clumps.

We’ve narrowed down the selections for you to what we feel are some of the top varieties offering a range of color, size and superior hardiness. Be warned, once you start perusing, you’ll find yourself wanting more than one variety. They’re just that beautiful!

Why all the confusion about the common names?
In 1763, the French botanist Michael Adanson described a plant (probably Liriope) that he called Mondo, which remains a common name today.

A few years later, Carl Peter Thunberg described a plant, which he named Convallaria japonica. This species is now known as Ophiopogon japonicus.

A decade later, Portugese botanist Joao de Loureiro described and named the plant we now know as Liriope muscari. Nearly 100 years later Joseph Decaisne described the same species as Ophiopogon muscari.

Over time there have been numerous discussions regarding these plants and the proper botanical names for them. Today, both Liriope and Ophiopogon are treated as distinct genera. In addition to sharing the name Mondo, the plants are also interchangably called Lilyturf and Monkey Grass.
