What Houzzers are commenting on:
Lily turf (Liriope muscari 'Big Blue', zones 5 to 10) has filled the racks of many retail outlets. But the species I find truly effective is Liriope spicata (zones 4 to 10). This plant slowly spreads across the ground plane and creates masses so thick, I have found myself laying in its comfort with my little ones. Go ahead and try it; the plant won't mind in the least! Summer flowers are a bonus with this exceptional plant.
