    Design IdeasIts name attests to the fact that this Lilyturf grows very well with far more sunlight than its kin. Makes a super edging plant to neaten beds filled with blooming annuals. The bright variegated leaves also bring a sense of light into darker plantings or woodland gardens. Perfect in a pot, in irregular bunches in the ground or planted next to boulders and rock waterfalls. Reliable and a very attractive bloomer, this is the premier plant for striped bladed foliage in home gardens.

  • Care
    Care Information
    Highly adaptable, but prefers well-drained, loamy sandy or clay soils. Water regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; tolerates mild drought, when established. For a neat appearance, remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).
