Monkey Grass (liriope muscari)

Monkey grass, also called “lily turf,” is a perennial with grass-like foliage. The foliage comes in solid green or variegated varieties and grows to be 8-12 inches in height. Starting in mid-to-late summer, it blooms with purple flower spikes that are slightly taller than the foliage.

It’s an extremely popular plant for landscape borders and it provides a great contrast in texture with the other plantings in your garden. You’ll love how easy this plant is to care for – it’s not fussy at all!
