Buy Liriope muscari big blue lily-turf: Purple, wand-like flowers and evergreen foliage

  • Position: partial to full shade, but will tolerate a sunnier spot if the soil is reliably moist.
  • Soil: well-drained, neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August to November
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    An extremely useful plant, which will tolerate a range of conditions including dry shade and drought. Dark green, blade-like leaves provide year-round interest and in autumn, just as other flowers are beginning to fade, vibrant, long-lasting wands of deep violet flowers rise above the foliage. Lily-turf is perfect for edging small, shady spaces - the broad grass-like foliage contrasts beautifully with large leaved plants, or for planting in groups beneath deciduous shrubs.

  • Garden care: To encourage new growth, cut off tired-looking leaves down to the ground in spring. This is also the time to lift and divide large clumps.

Notes on Liriope muscari

"Evergreen rosettes of strappy green leaves and silver-mauve spikes of violet blue flowers in autumn - for quiet shade"

Remains to be seen.

I planted this plant as instructed and in the advised location. This is, I believe, the 3rd autumn that I have had this plant and although it always looks healthy and shows no signs of dead leaves, disease or anything else, it has still failed to flower. I don't know what else to try.

Good edging plant that is easy to grow and gives some autumn colour.

I bought 3 of these plants, sadly, only 1 looks fairly healthy. I thought perhaps by now I would have seen some improvement but it's only minor. I planted them within a new border to fill space between shrubs & am disappointed by their lack of growth & no flower (this may be because it's a little too early yet). I'm planning to move the 2 rather 'sad' plants into another location over the next few weeks to see if that makes a difference. If not, they'll be taken out & replaced next year.

Lovely colour in Autumn

I have a Japanese style garden at the front of my house. It's mostly stone and pebbles, with conifers amongst them. I love this plant because it stands out amongst the green and makes a statement in Autumn. Everyone comments on my garden because it's just enough and not too much with the planting. I've been buying plants from Crocus for many years and they've never disappointed. My plants are always healthy and well packaged when they arrive.

Absolutely brilliant for a really shady spot!

I have mine planted below well established trees which are close to a high wall. They seem to thrive there and still flower well every year.

Ideal for positioning under the canopy of a small tree

I have struggled to find something attractive to site alongside grasses, in partial shade, under the canopy of our relatively small, Betula Moonbeam. It is early days but the Liriope seems ideal & I intend to purchase some more. This plant was among my first set of purchases for Crocus - I was impressed with plant quality, delivery timescale & packaging.

definitely would buy again

created a wider bed which is a bit shady - this filled a slot next to spring bulbs, primroses etc and will now give me some more later colour

Is it tolerant for my cat

It would be best to check with your vet, however this plant is not listed on the Cats Protection website for poisonous plants.
