Soil: Tolerant of a wide range of soils, but likes average, well drained soil. Does not like soil that is consistently wet.
Light: Full sun to part shade. Withstands sun better than most variegated forms, but does best in part shade.
Water: Average needs
Spacing: 12-18 inches
Fertilizing: When fertilizing, scatter fertilizer around plants but don't let fertilizer granules become wedged between leaves. These things can all stress and predispose liriope plants to become infected with leaf and crown rot.
Winterizing: Mow off the foliage of these ground covers in late winter before growth starts with a lawnmower set at the highest possible cutting height. Be sure not to injure the crown of the plant when you mow, and be sure the mower blades are sharpened. It is important to prune liriope before spring growth begins - late January in lower coastal South Carolina and by mid-February in upstate South Carolina.
Maintenance & Pruning: Can trim back any unsightly foliage in summer. Best to cut back entire plant in late winter/early spring to 3-4 inches high, and new growth will quickly replace it. Easily divided in spring for transplanting, but division isn't necessary for plant health.
