Liriope is a family of strappy evergreen perennial plants that thrive throughout Australia. With their rich and abundant royal purple, pink or white flowers and deep green foliage, they have become an increasingly popular choice for mass plantings, ground cover and a lawn alternative. They are not native to Australia instead they come from Asia.

Liriope is incredibly tough and hardy and will grow in a wide range of soil and environmental conditions. Liriope and Ophiopogon genera are closely related to each other and there has been some confusion about their names since with both plants are commonly referred to as Mondo Grass or Lily Turf. They can thrive well in heat and full sunshine as well as in shade. Liriope can tolerate periodic wet feet and freezing cold as well as hot dry winds and humidity.
