(Liriope muscari ‘Variegata’)
Unique yellow and green foliage merges to create eye-catching contrast, making the Variegated Liriope perfect for lining driveways, sidewalks, and foundations. It’s pretty, semi-evergreen foliage is virtually indestructible and will look attractive well into the winter months. Plus, you get large purple blooms through summer and fall, lending extra color to nearly any area of your landscape. The Variegated Liriope is perfect for sprucing up bare, trouble-prone spots in your garden since it’s carefree and effortlessly elegant.
The Liriope does well in an area with well-drained soil and around 4 to 6 hours of sunlight per day. Once you’ve found your location, dig a hole that’s about one to two times the width of your plant’s root ball. If you’re planting in a container, select one that is about one and a half times the width of your plant. After digging, place your plant, backfill your soil and water to settle the roots.
Depending on the rainfall in your area, your newly planted Liriope should be watered once or twice weekly. After the plant is established, water once every week or once every two weeks. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 2 to 3 inches down – if it’s dry, it’s time to water.
Apply an all-purpose fertilizer once in the springtime and then again in the summer while it’s growing.
The Variegated Liriope doesn’t require pruning, but you may prune for your desired shape.
