More Information About Liriope

Liriope is one of the most ubiquitous plants in the southern perennial garden, however, gardeners have only scratched the surface of this amazing group of hardy perennials. Liriope is a tough-as-nails, drought-tolerant member of the lily family that can be grown in sun or shade, and in moist or dry sites. Although not a true ornamental grass, its habit is very grass-like and it is often lumped together with perennial ornamental grasses like elymus or carex.

To keep your liriope looking fresh, mow or trim it to 3" tall in the early spring and the new foliage will quickly sprout and look good all year long. It is a tough, low maintenance plant which makes it perfect for rain gardens.
