information: Liriope is an upright grass that's very
easy to grow, it's tuff as nails... and to top if off it produces
a spike of attractive white flowers.
Place your Liriope nearly any where that gets any amount of
light and your plant will be happy. Liriope is commonly found in
interior applications such as shopping malls... because the plant
is very hardy and adaptable. Water when the surface of the soil
has dried down 1 to 2 inches. Feed bi-monthly with a balanced
plant food such as Peter's Plant Food available from our sponsors.
