Liriope grass, also called lilyturf, border grass, or monkey grass, looks a lot like a grass, but actually is a member of the asparagus family, Asparagaceae,
Liriope tolerates a wide range of soils and soil conditions, though it doesn't like constantly wet or boggy soil.
During the first growing season, water the plants regularly, at least 1 inch of water per week. Once established, liriope plants are relatively drought-tolerant.
Liriope can be mow during the late winter or early spring before new growth begins.
Use liriope as a groundcover, an edging plant to mark pathways or borders, naturalize under large trees, and in mass plantings for erosion control. A dense mat of liriope can stabilize soil on slopes and ditch banks. Liriope is a low-maintenance plant that is drought and deer-resistant.
