Liriope Muscari Ingwersen
This evergreen perennial of the lily family is one of the most widely used groundcover plants in existence in other countries but still scarce in Ireland . It forms neat clumps of grassy foliage that gradually increase in size over time, making it a perfect choice for use as a border. Lavender-violet flower spikes rise above the very dark-green clumps of foliage during summer, followed by attractive black berries. It looks and performs better given some shade during the afternoon.
It's clumping rather than spreading growth habit make it the perfect choice for a border. This is a groundcover plant that can also be used singly or in combination with other plants in container gardens where it adds a very nice vertical accent and grassy texture.
Prefers a moist but well-drained loose soil however will grow in any average soil. When established it is quite drought tolerant and only requires supplemental irrigation during prolonged periods of severe drought.
If you are looking for toughness and good looks, Liriope is hard to beat!
