Liriope NoMo® Lawn Alternative Description
Looking for a grass alternative that doesn't need mowing? - than NoMo® is your answer!
NoMo® grows only 3" tall and needs no mowing!
Dwarf creeping Lilyturf is a grass substitute that took 10 years to develop and bring to market and now available EXCLUSIVELY ONLINE at GreatGardenPlants.com. Compact at only 2-3" tall, creeping Liriope (lilyturf) is dark green with fine textured, grasslike leaves. It creeps slowly to form a thick, weed deterring carpet of green. It starts slowly the first year while forming rhizomes underground. The following spring, it starts popping up short rhizomes which cause it to thicken up considerably and cause it to be a very utilitarian alternative to a traditional lawn. It can be used as a ground cover for sun or shade. Plant between pavers or stepping stones - there are so many uses for this durable, rugged evergreen ground cover.

How to Plant
New plantings of NoMo® should be mulched (preferably with fine textured pine bark), given ample fertilizer, watered reguarly to keep the soil moist, and weeded as needed to prevent weed encroachment. Once filled in, NoMo® is like a dense carpet, and weed control is minimal. By then, NoMo® has also become incredibly drought resistant and requires only minimal watering.

Ideas and How-to's
Recommended for You:
Soil: Prefers moist, well-drained, but tolerates a wide range of soils, even poor and sandy/dry if regularly watered during times of drought.
Light: Sun tolerant in cool northern zones. In hot summer areas, plant in dappled to deep shade if you see burning occuring
Water: Best with regular water - weekly, or more often in extreme heat. Tolerates dry shade once plants are established.
Spacing: 10 apart
Fertilizing: Very adaptable and can survive in any well-drained soil. Mulch in between the plants when first planting. This is important to not only retain water, but to also keep the weeds out. No need to mulch once this fills in
Winterizing: None required
Maintenance & Pruning: Plants spread by stolons. Recommend a one-time spring mowing to clean off the old foliage and provide nutrients to the soil as the new foliage merges in northern zones. May not be needed in southern climates because winters aren't as harsh.
