Liriope muscari (Lily Turf, Border Grass)

Example of approximately what these plants look like when shipped. See the eighth photograph of any plant to see a photo of what it looks like when shipped.
Lily Turf is a tried and true weed-suppressing groundcover that performs famously on slopes where it will creep along controling erosion or as a border edging for formal gardens. Lily Turf is almost indestructible in stubborn areas like the base of trees where roots will not permit grass to grow.

Tolerant of drought, heat, humidity and even moist areas as well as resistant to deer and willing to thrive in hot, southern gardens, you will love this perennial's hardy personality. If you want a low-maintenance, clumping (with the exception of 'Big Blue') turf substitute in a shady or sunny area or just want a lush grass border to create a band of green, you'll want to take a good look at the varieties of Lily Turf we offer.

  • Liriope muscari (except for 'Big Blue') stays in clump form
  • Liriope spicata (Creeping Lily Turf) creeps (will spread)

  • See also:
  • Acorus gramineus (Sweet Flag)
  • Ophiopogon (Mondo Grass, Monkey Grass)
