Excellent Variegated Groundcover
The Liriope ‘Variegated’, Liriope muscari ‘Variegata’, is by far one of the most popular liriope. It is also known as Liriope variegated lily-turf, so is, as its name implies, a variegated border grass!
The grassy foliage is edged with creamy yellow. It has purple-blue blooms, similar to grape hyacinths, that appear on top the tidy plants in early fall. The flowers are followed by very dark purple, almost black, berries. This ‘Variegated’ liriope is excellent for edging and ground covers; when planting, space 12-15″ apart.
The bright variegated leaves make a super edging plant that highlights partially shaded beds; brings a sense of light into darker plantings so when choosing a site, Variegated’ liriope works extremely well as a border plant, especially for edging around sidewalks.
‘Variegated’ is one of the best choices for a care-free attractive ground cover. The only thing a gardener has to do with this wonderful plant is cut back old foliage in the spring!
