The Big Blue Liriope is a great perennial for groundcover or border plantings. Enjoy showy flower spikes of lavender flowers in late summer! Flowers transform to black berries late in the fall going into winter. Some people call it Monkey Grass!

This grass-like perennial features lavender flower spikes during the summer months along with black-colored berries going into winter. It is also very hardy and can be almost planted anywhere. There are no insect or disease problems with this Liriope.

Growth starts late spring and continues all the way through fall. Flower spikes will usually last up to 2 months.

This type of Liriope is very easy and doesn't require care. In early spring, you can cut down your Liriope and trim off the existing grass blades. This will remove the old existing growth from last year. This helps for a better flush later in spring. The new growth will also be larger than the year before. Keep your Liriope planted in rich, well-drained soil.

Don't forget to fertilizer your Liriope. They will benefit greatly from a high-quality, slow-release fertilizer once or even twice a year.

Caring for Big Blue Liriope
Liriope is a clumping perennial grass that is extremely easy to care for. Be sure to plant your Big Blue Liriope in growing zones 5 to 10. This Liriope grows well in full sun to part shade and is adaptable to a variety of soils as long as they are are not saturated. Water deeply once or twice weekly when newly planted to help the roots grow properly. After establishment (about 3 months or so) Liriope is drought tolerant. However, be sure to keep your Liriope watered in extreme heat, especially in the first summer. Fertilize with a slow release, balanced fertilizer in spring for optimal growth. For a cleaner look, prune back your Liriope to about 2 inches prior to new spring growth. Liriope rarely has issues with pests. Disease is also rare unless this grass is grown in wet conditions. Liriope is deer, rabbit, pollution, and salt tolerant.
Landscape ideas

The Big Blue is widely used in the landscape. Mostly for borders around plant beds to soften up the landscape and also hold in mulch. Plant about 1-2 feet apart for a nice border. If you have other areas you can also use this Liriope as a groundcover. It works great if you have a circular or square bed with a tree in the middle. You can use Liriope to fill in the entire bed for a no maintenance landscape. Also looks great when planted around boulders for a more natural look.
