Houseplant Cultural 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.

"Lily turfs" are usually available in 6" and 8" containers at your local garden center.
