Liriope 'Okina' is a very cool selection of the clumping monkey grass that came to us from famed Japanese nurseryman Akira Shibamichi in 1996, and subsequently introduced to US commerce by Plant Delights Nursery in 2002. In spring, the top 75% of each leaf is pure white. As Liriope 'Okina' matures through the growing season, the white becomes speckled with green flecks, eventually changing to flecked light green by fall (the coloration will hold better in cooler climates). In late summer, the clumps are topped with the typical stalks of lilac flowers. Liriope 'Okina' is truly a stunning plant that will stop visitors in their tracks!
