I love liriope for its versatility and easy-going nature. It works in sun and shade and everywhere in between. It has few problems and thrives on neglect. Although not invasive, it will fill a space in nicely when desired. There are two kinds of liriope and like bamboo, one that is clumping and one that spreads and is considered a ground cover. It is drought tolerant and is one of the best plants available for erosion control. It has purple flowers that many consider insidental. One of the attributes I often forget about are these lovely bluish-black berries it gets in the winter.
