Liriope, also known as Monkey Grass is generally used as an edging plant for gardens and walkways. However, this grass-like perennial can also be planted in clumps as a groundcover. Liriope is a hardy plant, growing in full sun to partial shade; it requires little care and can tolerates humidity, heat and drought. Once you have Liriope established in your flower bed, you don’t have to keep buying new plants.

What more could you ask for?
