Grow your style!

Many trendsetting plants are pricey and hard to maintain. After fifteen years of horticultural experience, I love a plant that makes a stylish impact without much fuss.

Liriope—commonly called Lillyturf or Monkey Grass—is one of my favorite discoveries from my days in the dirt. You’ll be amazed at how this grass adds organic texture to your living space.

Native to East Asia, Liriope isn’t really a grass at all, but rather a member of the Lilly family. It’s often planted around borders and areas where erosion is an issue. But here’s a little secret: it’ll thrive inside!

Grown in a pot, this plant can tolerate both full sun and shade, and will do well for those who water too much and those who forget to water at all. In late summer, it will even flower with little purple bells.

Liriope is also a fast spreader, letting you create a beautiful mound of green, grassy texture right inside your home.
