Description

Monkey Grass

Monkey Grass - Liriope muscari. Originating from both Southeast and East Asia, Monkey Grass, or lilyturf as it's known in North America, is not exactly a type of grass or a lily. It is a clump-forming, flowering, herbaceous plant with purple, spike-like blooms. They are easy to care for and often used in landscaping as ground coverage. They are usually 10 to 15 inches in height, 12 to 18 inches in length, and are evergreen. Depending on the type of Monkey Grass, some grow well in the shade while others grow better in the sunshine. Hardiness Zones for Monkey Grass range from 6 to 9.

Monkey grass is one of the best plants for attractive ground cover.

It is hardy, thick, grows well in hot climates, is resilient to pests and is easy to take care of with hardly any maintenance needed. The plant is not only evergreen but also blooms some quite spectacular flowers in the summer followed by thick clumps of berries in the fall. It is popular with gardeners wanting a pretty but tough plant for all areas of the garden, as it grows as well and looks as beautiful in small containers as it does in a large bed.

Monkey grass thrives in areas with shallow soil or where the occasional drought is a problem, although it will also withstand torrential rain.

It makes any troubled area look lush and lovely. The Asian native is spectacularly successful when planted in spots where others will not grow, yet looks lovely when placed alongside other plants and flowers. Monkey Grass is the most decorative grass one can plant to enhance borders, edging of sidewalks and around the edges of flower gardens. It also has a sweeping effect and is dark, lush green in color. This grass is the #1 used in landscaping. It's ornamental and looks dark green and does exceptionally well in most soils and climates. Hardy enough to plant in moisture yet it can also withstand drought and keep its dark emerald green appearance in color.
