The Variegate Liriope has vibrant yellow stripes that brighten the dark green, arching, grass-like foliage that adds color to any planting. Lilac flowers appear on stems as tall as the leaves. The Variegated Liriope is more containted and cleaner than others, making it an ideal choice to edge a border or planted with other perennials for contrast. Evergreen. Low-maintenance. Drought-tolerant once established.
Thrives in average, well-drained soils; adaptable to a range of soil types. Water regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; tolerates mild drought, when established. For a tidy appearance, remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
