Liriope - lilyturf - Jumbo Landscape Plugs Description

Liriope or lilyturf is a fast growing evergreen groundcover that spreads quickly to form a thick carpet of  graceful arching narrow green foliage.

This grassy leaf spreading perennial forms a tight mat and fills in quickly.  Ideal for banks and slopes to control erosion. Competes with tree roots.  Colonies with spread indefinitely.

Lilyturf is an aggressive weed suppressing groundcover that likes a part shade to shady location in almost any kind of well drained soil from clay to gravel.  It thrives in heat, cold, humidity and resistant to diseases. Drought tolerant once established.

Lilyturf grows 8-12" tall.  Plant 8-12" apart for a quick fill.  Spikes of lavender pale violet flowers in late summer.

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.
Water: Best with regular water - weekly, or more often in extreme heat. Tolerates dry shade once plants are established.
Spacing: 12 to 18 inches apart, which is what most gardeners do.
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: Non required
Maintenance & pruning: Plants spread by stolons. Use a barrier to retain growth or remove any unwanted plants. Foliage can be cut down or mowed in spring.
