Description
This really useful plant is a beauty lining walks, or defining the front of a border. Its easy to grow, spreads nicely, and stays low. Best of all, this hybrid gives you beautiful purple flowers each summer.

Whether you call it Lilyturf, Monkey Grass, or Liriope, once you've planted it, that area is done. Lilyturf is not really a grass or a lily, but you'll love it.

Love the Purple

Comments about American Meadows Monkey Grass Royal Purple - Plant:

I use this beautiful plant to define borders in my garden. I always plant it around new beds to help hold soil in the bed and to indicate to my yard man that he must stop here when mowing. Has saved both of us some grief. This dark purple color is striking in the landscape. The birds love the black fruit that follows the flowers. I don't think you can kill it and it really will grow anywhere you need it. Great for starting gardeners. I often add a small clump to containers. Fills the space and will get along with everything. EASY.
