Royal Purple Liriope - Lilyturf
Liriope muscari 'Royal Purple'

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

Royal Purple Liriope is a grass-like evergreen perennial featuring larger spikes of beautiful deep-purple flowers that rise above clumps of rich green grassy foliage in summer. The flowers are followed by attractive black berries. This evergreen perennial of the lily family is one of the most widely used groundcover plants in existence - and for very good reason. Unlike other Liriope varieties that spread wildly, Royal Purple forms neat clumps that gradually increase in size over time, making it a perfect choice for use as a border along walkways and paths or landscape beds. The butterflies and hummingbirds will love the flowers!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a mounded clump 14-18" tall and 18" wide, Royal Purple Liriope is ideal for use as an accent, a border edger along paths, walkways and patios, or as a groundcover under large trees or in home foundation plantings and landscape borders. Also a nice grassy accent as a solo or in combination container gardens.  

Spacing:  12-18 inches apart for mass plan tings or solid edger border





Cultural Preferences

Royal Purple Liriope is exceptionally easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average fertility and full sun or shade. Tolerates dry soil conditions well when established. As with many other plants, a constantly soggy or wet soil can be problematic.
