Liriope muscari. (Liriope platyphylla, Liriope graminifolia densiflora, Ophiopogon muscari). US nickname, Lily Turf or Big Blue. A shorter form, growing to 35cm with a reputation for flowering very freely with spikes of violet blue. This is a good all rounder for every garden. Useful for ground cover, for edging or as a flowering plant in its own right. Neat, arching shining green rush-like leaves are evergreen and in their prime in Winter. They are happy in sun or shade but flower best in sun. In the US they have earned the name ‘Lily Turf’ as the arching grass like foliage produces spikes of densely packed violet-blue grape hyacinth-like flowers in late Autumn. Easily grown they are both hardy and drought tolerant, only requiring reasonable drainage to succeed. Named after the Greek nymph Liriope, one of the Naiad.

In the US they have earned the name ‘Lily Turf’ as the arching grass like foliage produces spikes of densely packed violet-blue grape hyacinth-like flowers in late Autumn. Easily grown they are both hardy and drought tolerant, only requiring reasonable drainage to succeed. Named after the Greek nymph Liriope, one of the Naiad. Liriope was the Naiad that bore the river god Cephisus a son, Narcissus. Narcissus fell in love with his own reflection and was transformed into the flower we all grow. Liriope is derived from the Greek for ‘face of narcissus’, the two names Liriope and Narcissus being connected in Ancient Greek times.
