Liriope, Big Blue
Description: A grass-like plant that blooms! Liriope is a unique, evergreen grassy perennial with wide, dark green, strappy leaves and a fountain-like habit. Delightful, lilac-purple flowers are displayed above the foliage in late summer. 'Big Blue' is a clump-forming selection. Use it in containers or in the landscape. One of the most prized characteristics of this plant is that it can hold its own in drier soils where there is active root competition.
