Buy Liriope muscari 'Okina' lily-turf: Stunning tufted white foliage emerges, then gradually matures to a rich green

  • Position: partial to full shade, but will tolerate a sunnier spot if the soil is reliably moist.
  • Soil: well-drained, neutral to acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August to November
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A very unusual lily-turf emerging with white strap like foliage, that slowly ages to a lightly speckled, frosted leaf through to a pure green when mature. Then in late summer it produces masses of violet-blue spiked flowers, that look stunning against the changing foliage. An easy to grow, eyecatching, low maintenance evergreen clump-forming plant that will lighten up a shady corner.

  • Garden care: To encourage new growth, cut off tired-looking leaves down to the ground in spring. This is also the time to lift and divide large clumps.

Terrible

Bought two of these over a year ago - both plants were small on arrival and have stayed the exact same size! They're still alive I'll give them that. I may try transplanting to a sunnier spot as it seems these do not thrive in 'full shade' as per the instructions.

Healthy small plant on arrival

Had high hopes for this plant in area shaded by shrubs and small trees with neutral soil ph. Healthy on arrival. Watered well after planting and through first summer as soil in area can be prone to dryness in warm dry weather. Responded well initially but by autumn there was no new growth just hoping it will pick up after winter. ( I think rabbit activity last year may have contributed to its demise as several other plants were up-rooted or eaten)

Excellent plant for a shady area

I bought this plant to lift an area under a red coloured acer tree which it does in spades. Soil has been treated with compost but has a tendency to be clay based. Only been about a year but the plant appears to be thriving even with all the rain we have been experiencing throughout 2019

Did arrive in bloom so I don't think it appreciated being up rooted and I did notice some die back along with an aphid attack, however I have given it space and time to settle and its growing back strong and green. Also noticing some spreading now so very happy with it and maybe should have gotten more.

I bought 3 Liriope Muscari Okina from Crocus some months ago and they are not growing on as I would have expected or the other young grasses that I planted at the same time. One is just sarting to show some white leaves but the other 2 or no larger than when I took delivery. One of them looks as if it won't survive. Any suggestion/ remedies would be welcomed
