Lily Turf 'Majestic' {25 Pots - 3 1/2 in.}

When people ask for an all-around hardy Liriope with showier flowers, this one immediately comes to mind. Majestic completely lives up to his name. Elegant emerald foliage arches gracefully in glorious clumps of green while regal coxcomb-shaped clusters of amethyst flower spikes stand at attention with their blooms.

With narrow bands of evergreen 1/2 inch wide foliage and lovely, large lilac blossoms from late summer through early fall, Majestic is simply superb. He is an easy care, low-maintenance groundcover great for edging and borders or on a slope assisting with erosion control.

People love that he tolerates drought and deer tend to avoid him. With a moderate growth rate, you can cover a large expanse of empty garden space with a miniature forest of foliage that waltzes in the wind and bows to passersby when there is no breeze.

Things to Note
In northern areas (and during winter), Majestic's foliage may become pale green-brown.

If planting in zone 5, be sure to check with your local extension to confirm winter hardiness in your area.

Gardener Tips
Consider pairing Majestic with Carolina Jasmine climbing up a fence or structure in the backdrop. The sunny yellow of Carolina's blooms is a perfect complement to Majestic's lavender blossoms.

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!

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.

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.

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.
This plant can be susceptible to Anthracnose, especially in southern zones. If it develops brown spots in winter, cut the foliage back (to the ground is OK) in early spring.
