Southern Gardening: Liriope is an effective groundcover
Liriope is an old standard when the Mississippi landscape calls for a groundcover.
It is reliable in both full sun or shade, and as long as the soil is well drained, liriope will thrive in heat and drought.
Liriope is commonly known as monkeygrass or lilyturf. It is a versatile groundcover, effective under large trees where sunlight is limited or mass planted on slopes. It also creates soft borders for paved areas and foundations.
