Liriope muscari 'Big Blue'

Lily turf

Liriope 'Big Blue' is a wonderful way to edge a path or bed. A clumping, grass-like evergreen with dark leaves, 'Big Blue' produces erect, showy flower spikes with tiered whorls of dense, lavender flowers in late summer. These are followed by black berry-like fruits that appear in fall, which are eaten and spread by birds. Also known as lily turf or monkey grass, Liriope is very tolerant of summer heat and humidity.
