I credit my nephew’s wife, Lara, for identifying my description of the border grass most Floridians plant in their yards as liriope. I was a Southerner back in the ’70s when my love for the bordered look formed. Of course I posed my question to Lara years and years ago and was required to remember it until last year when I asked our yard guy to order enough plants to string from one end of the landscape to the other.
At the beginning of summer the plants looked like this, spaced.
And now, after an entire summer of Mauri’s faithful watering, they look like this, full and healthy. Notice the purple flowers?
I had to grab a few pictures before the downpour of maple leaves, due to start any minute, covers everything up.
