Be sure to drop by soon for a spirit-lifting stroll through the garden department. A couple more deliveries have just arrived with enormous quantities of gorgeous new plants.
One plant that arrived in a bit greater numbers than we had planned is Creeping Lily Turf (Liriope spicata). This member of the Asparagus family is fast spreading and helps control erosion. It’s evergreen, grows up to 1-1/2 feet tall and does well under shallow rooted trees and along streams and ponds. It even tolerates deer. And as a bonus, it sends up spikes of pale lavender flowers in late summer.
P. S. Liriope is pronounced luh-rahy-uh-pee and was named for the mythological Greek nymph who was the mother of Narcissus.
