What Houzzers are commenting on:
There are few plants that possess such a deep shade of green as monkey grass (Liriope spp), shown here. Astoundingly, it stays that lush with little to no irrigation (especially when planted in the shade). It’s not a grass at all, but a tuberous plant in the asparagus family, with dainty purple or white flowers in spring. L. spicata can be highly invasive in some areas, but L. muscari is a well-behaved clumping plant that can be used without fear of its escaping into the wild. It is hardy to zones 6 to 9.
