More about Variegated Liriope...
This is one tough plant you almost cannot kill. Stomp on it, drive over it with your car, cut it back to the ground...heck, we've even accidentally sprayed it with RoundUp and it didn't die! That being said, we don't advise spraying it with any herbicides.
The attractive grassy leaves are dark green striped vertically with white or a creamy yellow margins. Lilac-lavender flower spikes resembling hyacinths rise above the clumps of grass-like foliage in summer, adding extra appeal.
Unlike other Liriopes that will wildly spread where they are not wanted, 'Variegata' forms neat clumps which gradually increase in size over time. No runners popping up 2 feet away from the plant!
Its neat clump-forming habit make 'Variegata' a perfect choice for bordering sidewalks or the perimiters of garden beds or in mass as a groundcover under small or large trees.
Vearigated Lirope will grow in almost any type of average garden soil, preferring loose, well-drained but moist soils. It will tolerate shade however produces the best color with more sun.
If you are looking for a long-lived, excetionally tough border plant or groundcover, Variegated Liriope is a hard one to beat.

Happy with plants and serviceDecember 14th 2014
I ordered several flats of Liriope this fall from Gardener Direct. It was my first order from the company. I like the website. It provides excellent information and is easy to use. The order arrived quickly. The plants were packed well and were in great shape. The plants have been in the ground for a couple of months now and appear very healthy. I will definitely order from Gardener Direct again.

I needed 2 loriope and could not find these in local nurseries, so ordered from Garden Direct. They arrived in great shape and had been well watered before shipping. I would order from Garden Direct again.
