An easy-care ground cover for those dry, sandy and hard-to-grow areas. Growing 8-18 inches tall, Variegated Liriope 's grasslike leaves are striped in green and creamy white. From midsummer to fall, spikes of purple flowers bloom, adding pops of color to the garden. Tolerates a variety of light conditions: sun, partial shade and shade. Prefers well-drained soils and is drought tolerant, once established. Variegated Liriope is a favorite for planting as edging or ground cover. Deer tend to avoid. Zones 5-10.
