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 where it makes amazing groundcovers.

Purple Passion is a lily-turf variety with deeper coloured flowers. They are rich purple violet and formed in terminal spikes atop about 20-30 cm tall stems of the same colour. They rise well above the foliage making a good display of richly coloured flowers. Flowers are produced from midsummer until mid autumn. The foliage is ribbon-like, dark green, very glossy, and evergreen in winters of zone 6.

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.
