Lily-turf is a unique evergreen perennial that is often sold in grass sections of garden centres. However, it belongs to the lily family, hence its name. It comes from shady forests of Eastern Asia.

Moneymaker is a clump forming lily-turf variety with attractive foliage and flowers. Its dark green, ribbon-like, semi-glossy, narrow leaves are evergreen in mild winters of zone 6, and reliably evergreen in warmer areas. In early August are borne spikes of rich lavender violet flowers on strong, dark purple stems. They usually overgrow the leaves by not more than about 10 cm. New spikes are produced continuously until early autumn.

Liriope does well in moist, humus-rich, and preferably acid to neutral soil, but will tolerate almost any well-drained soil. It does best in partial shade, and lives well in full sun, too, if adequate moisture is provided, as well as in deep shade where flowering may be limited. Mulching is recommended in frost prone areas. In case the leaves look exhausted and unsightly after a strong winter cut them off about 5 cm above ground level in spring, not lower. Hardy to min. -25°C.
