Liriope muscari 'Variegata'


Pot size 9cm pot
9cm pot
  • Position: partial to full shade, but will tolerate a sunnier spot if the soil is reliably moist.
  • Soil: well-drained, neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August to November
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Each relatively wide, mid green leaf is edged in creamy-yellow, creating a lightness that is particularly useful for illuminating shaded positions. The colour of the violet-purple flowers, which crowd the upright spikes, appear intensified against the backdrop of this lustrous foliage. A compact cultivar that looks great when planted out in large, sweeping swathes.

  • Garden care: To encourage new growth, cut off tired-looking leaves down to the ground in spring. This is also the time to lift and divide large clumps.
