Liriope Grass 'Big Blue'
Also known as 'monkey grass', this grass-like perennial is easy to grow and a good choice for beginners. Growing from 12 to 18 inches tall and wide, plants form a clump of strap-shaped dark green leaves. Lilac buds and flower spikes appear in late summer, followed by black berries. Excellent groundcover or border plant. It will grow in most any soil, form loose sand to heavy clay, and does not require good drainage. Use as a companion with Rudbeckia, Sedum or Chrysanthemums.
