12-24"’ tall x 12-24" wide. ‘Big Blue’ Liriope stands up to the toughest conditions, tolerating heat, humidity, air pollution, and drought. Plants are rabbit and deer-proof, making ‘Big Blue’ an easy choice for the no-fuss gardener. Plant large masses as a grassy groundcover in shaded sites or use to edge beds and pathways. The tidy mounds are also perfect for tucking among perennials. ‘Big Blue’ is at home in rock gardens, woodland gardens, and containers. An excellent plant for transitioning from sun to shade. Also known as monkey grass or lily turf, liriope is often used as a grass substitute in low-traffic areas of the landscape and provides a great solution for soil cover in shady areas where turf won’t grow. Foliage can be cleaned up in early spring to remove brown tips. Use a sharp shear to cut leaf tips or mow plants back hard.
