Design Ideas Its 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.
Flower Color Purple
Foliage Color Variegated
Companion Plants Hosta (Hosta); Coneflower (Echinacea); Daylily (Hemerocallis); Shasta Daisy (Chrysanthemum); Speedwell (Veronica)
CARE
Care 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.
