Liriope muscari 'Big Blue'

Big Blue Lily Turf

Liriope muscari 'Big Blue' is the standard of green Liriope.  Big Blue has narrow, ¼" wide, green leaf blades.  Blooms with lavender flower spikes mid-Summer and they are followed by near black berries.  Big Blue Liriope clumps spread by short rhizomes.  Perfect for erosion control on banks, slopes and large bed plantings.  Can be used for borders and edging if kept in check.  (See all other varieties of muscari that stay in clump form for use as borders or in mixed beds with less maintenance.)  Mature height 12"-15, spread 12"-24"
