The Liriope 'Variegated', Liriope muscari 'Variegata', is by far one of the most popular liriope. It is also known as Liriope variegated lily-turf, so is, as its name implies, a variegated border grass!
The grassy foliage is edged with creamy yellow. It has purple-blue blooms, similar to grape hyacinths, that appear on top the tidy 9 to 12" plants in early fall. The flowers are followed by very dark purple, almost black, berries. This 'Variegated' liriope is excellent for edging and ground covers; when planting, space 12-15" apart.
The bright variegated leaves make a super edging plant that highlights partially shaded beds; brings a sense of light into darker plantings so when choosing a site, Variegated’ liriope works extremely well as a border plant, especially for edging around sidewalks.
‘Variegated’ is one of the best choices for a care-free attractive ground cover. The only thing a gardener has to do with this wonderful plant is cut back old foliage in the spring!
