I've never grown a Liriope but always admired them. Happy GTS

I like the poem and the plant which I have never heard of. Sara from farmingfriends

I have never seen or heard of this plant. The spikes on yours remind me of lavender. Thanks for stopping by our Blog.

Beautiful liriope! Ours has bloom spikes for the first time *ever* and it's been in that bed for a good five years. I'm so excited! I also see I will need to control it better. LOL

Drew

Those are some pretty flowers. Happy GTS!

Muum

Great quote, I had not heard that one before!

I love posts that have sayings or poems added. Beautiful lirirope.
BTW--I took that gardening style test and I'm a bit peaved to admit I was a "D" type by a narrow majority. I almost fell into the tie category, which would mean I have no style. Don't know which is worse! It was fun.

My liriope has blooms, too! It's the first it's ever bloomed. But that's okay, I love the foliage and growth form.

Thanks for visiting, everyone. Hope you had a great GTS!

I don't know what to call the spikes on the liriope - flowers or buds. They don't have petals, but lavender berry-like things on the stems. Whatever - they're pretty! Berries will come next....

Aiayana - I know from your blog that you've got style, no doubt about that!

I like the passage that you've chosen.
The picture of the liriope is nice.
It is another plant that is on my list to aquire.

Beth

Chigiy -- It is an extremely easy plant to grow. I literally never water mine and it remains a lush green throughout the summer.
