We cannot ship any container plants with soil into CA,AZ,OR, and WA. For these states all plants will be taken out of containers, the soil shaken off of the roots, and then roots dipped in water retention gel, then wrapped with moist medium and packaged to insure fresh and live delivery. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Orders shipping to the following states: AZ, CA, CO, ID, MT, NV, OR, UT, WA, and WY are subject to a 20% handling charge due to additional plant preparation and shipping surcharges.


Liriope Big Blue are attractive, tufted evergreen ground cover plants with arching, grass like foliage. Big Blue Liriope forces abundant blue flower spikes above the mounded blue green foliage in summer followed by clusters of black berries.  This liriope variety is superior for edging or bordering partially shaded areas. The Big Blue Liriope prefers moist, but not wet soils, and can tolerate dry soil conditions once established. 

As with most liriope, the Big Blue grows 12 to 15 inches tall and wide in partial sun or shade. Once established these plants are virtually maintenance free.

Care Instructions for Liriope:

Lirope likes moist, loamy soil with lime and leaf mold. We like using them as ground covers for deciduous shrubs, conifers, or broad leafed evergreens and when possible plant them in elevated areas to admire their interesting flowers.

Facts about Liriope:

Liriope can be used as ground cover plants under trees and shrubs and as in masses when planted on hillsides and slopes. Liriope muscari and its cultivars can also be used as low edging plants along paved areas or in front of foundation plantings.

You will find liriope is remarkably tough. It will grow in deep shade or full sun, sand or clay. It is heat tolerant, drought tolerant as well as tolerant of salt spray, though it will not tolerate “wet feet”; it requires moist, well-drained soil. Flowers are produced most freely in a sunny location.

Space the plants about 1 foot apart when planting. As the plants grow and mature, they can be dug and separated — usually this is done every 3 or 4 years if you want to increase your plants. Division is rarely necessary for the health of the plant.

Mow or weed eat to remove the foliage of these ground covers in late winter before new growth starts. Be sure not to injure the crown of the plant. It is important to prune liriope before spring growth begins for a healthy full looking plant.
