Liriope spicata

Lily turf, creeping

Liriope spicata is a grass-like perennial which forms a clump of narrow, arching, glossy, dark green leaves. Erect flower spikes with pale lavender to white flowers arise, somewhat hidden, among the leaves in late summer. Flowers often give way to blackish berries in fall. Liriope spicata, also known as Creeping Lily Turf, spreads quickly by underground rhizomes to form dense, spreading clumps that look almost grassy in appearance. Perfect for under trees, along banks and slopes!
