spreading monkey grass, lily turf

Liriope spicata

Grassy texture, but not a grass at all — actually, it’s a member of the lily family. 12″ dark evergreen grassy foliage is  topped with purple flower spikes in spring. This is a spreading liriope that crowds out weeds and forms a striking low maintenance bed. A great underplanting for ornamental trees.
