Creeping Lily Turf {50 Bare Root plants}

If you need something with grassy-green foliage and a late season bloom, you will love Liriope spicata with its narrow (1/4 inch wide) slender leaves that reach up to 18 inches in height.

If you are considering purchasing this plant in bare root form, please read about bare root plants so you know what to expect.

Note: the gallon plants are shipped de-potted and with most of the soil shaken off.

General information about Liriope spicata (Creeping Lily Turf):
Liriope spicata offers late summer cloudy lavender to cottony white flower spikes that rise out of feathery foliage on 10 inch shoots. In late fall, these flowers often give way to blackish berries.

In southern zones, you’ll find Liriope spicata remains an evergreen tuft and is virtually indestructible in stubborn areas like the base of trees where roots otherwise impede growth. On slopes and banks, she is stellar at erosion control, and forming a mat that gracefully chokes out most weeds, filling any empty spots in a garden with her beauty.

If you need a quick-growing perennial, you will love that she spreads moderately to very fast by underground rhizomes, its foliage resembles very vigorous turf grass, hence the common name. While not ideal for borders plantings, many gardeners choose it as a low-maintenance turf substitute for low foot traffic areas because unlike most groundcovers where leaf litter can get entangled, spicata's fallen leaves can easily be raked free from its linear foliage.

The hardiness of this plant is really the show-stopper here. It puts up with drought, poor soil, heat, humidity, slopes and moist areas; it performs best in moist, fertile soils. Additionally, spicata is moderately tolerant of salt and deer tend to avoid it, making it perfect for people with pests.

Gardeners love to use Liriope spicata along streams, ponds, and boulders or in rock gardens, along paths, and under shallow-rooted trees where she promises to thrive.

Important note about bare root Liriope
Liriope is not like other perennials, it grows much slower the first year when transplanted from bare roots than from potted plants. Do not expect much growth the first season after transplanting bare roots. If you seek substantial growth the first summer after transplanting, buy potted plants.

I had never ordered "Bare Root Plants" before but online searches let me know what to expect. My plants were bundled in bunches of 50 and they were covered with a moisture retaining material and wrapped in plastic sheeting. Very nice way to ship the product... Read full review >

My order of bare-root liriope spicata arrived in great shape and ready to plant. The root clumps were quite substantial and were very easy to stabilize - others I've received from other companies have been so meagre that they just tip over.
Shipped very quickly, in great shape, and wow, great price. Thanks so very much. I am going to keep Classy Groundcovers in mind for future projects.
As promised

In northern zones where winter snow will crush the foliage, consider shearing (or mowing on high) in late fall or very early spring to avoid a period of ratty-looking dead foliage in the spring that can impede new spring growth.

Shearing in southern zones is optional, you may elect to do it just to maintain the most attractive appearance.
