L. spicata

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.
Light lavender to white flowers that resemble miniature grape hyacinth blooms appear in late summer suspended on 10" stalks above dense arching, evergreen (in southern zones) tufts of narrow, grassy foliage. Perfect for slopes, beds and at the base of trees where roots will not permit grass to grow, this groundcover is a nearly indestructible plant in stubborn areas.

Tolerant of drought, heat, poor soil, humidity, moist areas and even some tolerant of salt, Liriope spicata will control erosion and suppress weeds as it creeps along in classy clumps of green. With deer tending to avoid it, we often use this groundcover as a low-maintenance turf substitute.

We offer time-tested, tried and true varieties so you won't need to worry about performance.
