Seasonal Star
Big Blue Liriope
(Liriope muscari)
Big blue liriope is easy to grow and it tolerates full shade or direct sunlight. Just keep it away from very hot areas near pavement. Although big blue liriope produces small purple flowers in the summer and black berries in the winter, it is most valued because it stays evergreen, does not invade other areas and provides great contrast to sprawling, flowering plants.
