Liriope muscari 'Silvery Sunproof'

Boldly variegated foliage, and soft lilac flower spikes highlight this evergreen perennial. Fuss-free and adaptable, resistant to insects and disease, and tolerant of heat and humidity when established. Takes sun in cool summer climates; part sun to shade anywhere. Excellent as groundcover, edging for a walkway, or filler in a tub planting.

Bloom TimeSummer
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.

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.
