Amethyst™ Liriope muscari 'LIRTP' PBR

Just after winter Amethyst™ Liriope has great green foliage but fast forward to summer and it has flowers that sit high above the foliage which is different than other Liriopes.

The beautiful long lasting deep purple flowers are a real hi-light. Amethyst™ Liriope also has an excellent foliage form producing semi compact dark green clumps.

There are other Liriope available that also have good deep purple flowers but their foliage is very flat compared to Amethyst™ Liriope and their flowers are shorter.

Amethyst™ Liriope is a nice clean plant that performs well all over Australia in full sun to heavy shade. It grows about 40cm wide and high and tolerates most soil types. In colder areas it’s worth cutting it back at the end of winter.
