Silver Dragon Liriope
Liriope spicata 'Silver Dragon' 


USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 5b-11  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of  USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 5b, where this Liriope is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring. 



Special Attributes

Silver Dragon Liriope is a moderate to fast growing, grass-like perennial which forms spreading clumps of narrow, green leaves striped with silver and ivory, providing what looks like a solid patch of white in the landscape. Erect flower spikes with deep lavender-blue flowers rise above the foliage in late summer followed by bluish-black berries. The foliage provides a stunning contrast with dark foliage plants. Spreads fast under shallow-rooted trees.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Silver Dragon Liriope is a fast spreading groundcover growing 12 inches tall and spreading 24 inches or more. It is ideal for use as a groundcover or border along paths and walkways or around patios, or in home foundation plantings. A nice underplanting for small trees such as Japanese Maples an as a colorful and grassy accent in combination container gardens.  





Cultural Preferences

Silver Dragon Liriope is very easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average fertility and full sun or shade. Tolerates dry soil conditions when established. Constantly soggy or wet soil can be problematic.
