More about Big Blue Liriope...
This evergreen perennial of the lily family is one of the most widely used groundcover plants in existence - and for very good reason! Unlike other Liriope varieties that spread wildly, Big Blue forms neat clumps of grassy foliage that gradually increase in size over time, making it a perfect choice for use as a border.
Lavender-violet flower spikes rise above the very dark-green clumps of foliage during summer, followed by attractive black berries.
Big Blue Liriope will tolerate full sun however we think it looks and performs better given some shade during the afternoon. If you're looking for a Liriope that will tolerate full sun check out 'Variegata.'
It's clumping rather than spreading growth habit make it the perfect choice for a border however we have used it all over our gardens in mass plantings under trees and in other shady areas. This is a groundcover plant highly suitable for home foundation plantings. It can also be used singly or in combination with other plants in container gardens where it adds a very nice vertical accent and grassy texture.
Big Blue Liriope prefers a moist but well-drained loose soil however will grow in most any average soil. When established it is quite drought tolerant and only requires supplemental irrigation during prolonged periods of severe drought.
If you are looking for toughness and good looks, Big Blue Liriope is hard to beat!
