Liripoe spicata image 1

Liriope “spicata”. Common names include Monkeygrass and Creeping Lilyturf.

Here’s is one of our favorite and most versatile groundcovers.  This is a plant called Liriope “spicata”, and resembles the healthiest looking grass you’ve ever seen.  It grows in a variety of environments including full shade to partial sun.Liriope is in its prime right now when you’ll catch the plant blooming purple, conical-shaped flowers that contrast beautifully with its vibrant green foliage.  Leave the growth to overwinter and in the spring, simply cut back the plants to within 2 inches of the ground to promote new growth.

Gorgeous!
