Description
Not a true grass, but actually a member of the lily family sometimes called Lilyturf or Monkey Grass, Liriope is a wonderful dense groundcover under trees and shrubs. Flower spikes of purple bloom in mid-summer. This cultivar, Silvery Sunproof grows only 12-15 inches tall, and has leaves that are striped green and yellow. This is a great plant for adding interest and colorful bloom in both filtered sun or shade.

    Comments about American Meadows Liriope Silvery Sunproof - Plant:

    This is the second year and still very little is showing above ground, only about an inch. They just aren't growing. They aren't dead, there is new growth but they should be fully spread by now. They never flowered.
