Looking for a little twist in some ground cover? You should definitely consider our Variegated Liriope for sale. Also known as Lilyturf or Monkey Grass.
If you have used Big Blue Liriope before, the variegated variety has a nice twist to it. Each blade of grass has a unique texture of yellow on the outside edges and green in the middle.
It also flowers! Enjoy light purple flowers popping from the middle of the plant in September which make it a colorful groundcover.
Enjoy year-round interest with the Variegated! This Liriope is super easy to grow and is deer tolerant too!
Liriope is a clumping perennial grass that is extremely easy to care for.
Be sure to plant your Variegated Liriope in growing zones 6 to 11. This Liriope grows well in part sun to full 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) Variegated 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. Variegated Liriope is deer, rabbit, pollution, and salt tolerant.
Plant this perennial almost anywhere. It does great in partial sun to shady areas. It looks great when planted in masses near a boulder or in larger natural areas for a more bold look and color.
Also you can use it as a border. Plant each Liriope about 1-2 feet apart to give each plant bed a more defined look.
