You want strange...can you handle strange? If so, we've got strange! Back in the early 1990s we grew seed from the rare yellow-banded Liriope muscari 'Hawk's Feather'. A decade later we selected the best seedling and nearly two decades later we finally have enough to share. The upright, dark green leaves are heavily banded with wide horizontal yellow bands...most prominent on the new growth. The evergreen clumps are topped with short stalks of lavender flowers in midsummer. Imagine a woodland version of the Zebra miscanthus and you get the picture. Quantities are limited.
