Don't have a green thumb? Do you need a plant that is super easy to care for, forgives you if you forget it, yet still looks graceful and beautiful and makes you look like a pro? Spicata Liriope (Liriope spicata) is the plant for you!

This lovely plant grows in gentle grass-like clumps that happily fill in bare and hard to plant areas. The leaves are strappy and a beautiful deep green. In the summer, tall spikes of purple flowers crown the tufts and attract bees and butterflies, animating your garden. Butterflies and bees will be grateful for these blossoms!

Liriope are incredibly tolerant and adaptable perennial plants. Growing only 12-15 inches tall and 12-24 inches wide, these slowly creep and spread to fill areas in sun or part shade throughout USDA hardiness zones 4 through 9.

Planting and Application:

These are classic edger plants, providing a soft border to your perennial beds. Use them in masses as a grand groundcover under big trees or lined up in rows to guide your way along a pathway. Put them around your rose beds. Edge your driveway or anchor your mailbox with a ring of grassy, easy-care perennial plants. Plant them where they will hide the feet of straggly shrubs as facer plants.

We suggest letting them spill out of your favorite containers on either side of your entryway to make an unforgettable first impression, even if you occasionally forget it's there. Planting in a container also means you can move it where ever you need a little perennial pick me up. Or plant a few in or around the back patio when entertaining guests as an accent. Their tolerance of moist sites makes Liriope ideal Rain Garden plants!
