Monroe White Clumping Monkey Grass
Item #: 17368
Zones: 6a to 10b
Height: 12" tall
(aka: Liriope Monroe #2) Liriope 'Monroe White' is a superb clumping monkey grass, introduced as a selected seedling by Atlanta's W.L. Monroe in 1957. We've grown it since the 1990s and consider it the finest white-flowered monkey grass on the market. The 1' tall x 2' wide evergreen clumps of wide, dark green foliage are topped, starting for us in mid-August with narrow spikes of pure white flowers that rise 6" above the foliage. While many Liriope muscari cultivars prefer sun, that is not the case with Liriope 'Monroe White'...especially not afternoon sun.
