Fast Growing Groundcover with Evergreen Foliage & Spring Flowers
The Liriope Super Blue plant is an improved addition to the more common Big Blue Liriope muscari that grows a bit taller and can tolerate more direct sunlight.
This versatile ornamental grass can instantly transform any yard with its striking lavender-blue flower blossoms and fierce, spiky dark green foliage!
It features abundant blue flower spikes with blueish purple flowers that rise above its tufted grass like foliage from spring to summer. After the flowers bloom in early spring it is followed by clusters of black berries.
SUPER BLUE LIRIOPE CARE
This plant prefers moist, loamy soil and part shade areas, but will tolerate dry soil conditions once established. The liriope super blue for Florida is quite tough and is both heat, humidity, and drought tolerant during the summer months… it’s also salt spray tolerant.
Its lavender flowers bloom best in a full sun location and resemble grape hyacinth. It will grow more dark green leaved grass in the shade. Make sure to provide well drained soil types.
Blue lily turf can be grown in most of the United States. This fast growing liriope variety grows best in hardiness zones 5-11 and has excellent cold hardiness. The super blue liriope size can grow to 15-18 inches tall and wide and up to 2.5 feet wide.
Plant care includes watering regularly the first year of planting to establish a strong root system. Divide clump forming masses in the early spring growing season to encourage spreading.

Once your Liriope Super Blue Shrub order is placed, we will ship your plant(s) within seven business days year round unless during the checkout process you request otherwise in the space provided to do so.
Perfect Plants’ shipping specialists carefully package your plants using a proven packaging method that ensures your plants arrive healthy, colorfully alive and ready to flourish. We’ve coined the term ‘upside down box test’ and we do just that; we carefully package so that regardless of the direction your box is handled, it will not harm your precious plant that’s inside.
No shipping process is without a problem from time to time. On rare occasions some plants may experience some of the following during their transit: drooping, minor leaf-loss and/or minimal yellowing/discoloration, minor limb damage, etc. These instances are quite rare, but can happen when shipping plants in boxes.
Plants normally recover within a few weeks after planting. If a damaged box has injured your plant on the inside, please notify us within 5 days of receiving you package(s) by emailing us a photograph of the damage.
We always do our very best to ensure that your plants are packed and shipped in the safest, gentlest and most effective way possible.
Will my plants and trees look like the photographs?
Absolutely! Unlike other online nurseries, our photos are of actual plants and trees we’ve grown here, on our family operated nursery.
Growing our own plants and trees helps to ensure we ship you the best quality plants that are free of pests and diseases.
Your plants and trees may however not ship with flowers on them, like the photographs. This all depends on the time of year you buy your plant or tree. Crape Myrtle trees, for example, only bloom during the summer months, so if you purchase one during the spring or fall, they would ship without flowers. Once planted, your plants will grow and thrive giving you flowers for many years to come!
Pot sizes (commonly referred to in gallons) are shipped in the same size nursery trade pots which may vary in actual volume. Some plants may have been at the approximate pot size listed, but require excess dirt to be removed so that you will not be paying any additional shipping costs. This doesn’t happen very often though.
Our shipping charges are based on the value of your order and the destination it is being shipped. Please see the chart on the Shipping Info page to get an exact amount. We frequently have a free shipping promotion to help you save!
SUPER BLUE LIRIOPE CARE:
The easily grown, low maintenance Liriope is adaptable to most soil types and light conditions. It thrives in moist (but not soggy), fertile soils in part shade. It is drought tolerant once established, but should be watered regularly until then.
Once annually in late winter, a lawnmower on a high setting can be used to prune the Liriope back for rejuvenated spring growth.
For a hedgerow accent or for ground cover, space the Liriope 1 foot apart.
Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is equal with the ground level.
Loosen the root ball using a small garden spade or by hand. Breaking smaller outer roots can encourage growth into the new soil, but take care to not damage large primary roots.
Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated evenly upright. Use the excavated soil to fill in around the root ball, using your foot to pack it in firmly. Thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball as this could kill the plant.
A 2-4 inch layer of mulch is strongly recommended to help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply mulch over the entire planting area but keep away from the stems or trunk by a few inches. Ensure that the plant and surrounding soil is completely soaked with water.
To ensure the proper nutrients are available for the life of your Super Blue Liriope, our proprietary Perfect Plants Special Blend Soil and a once yearly application of Nutricote Total 360 Fertilizer are great considerations for your new plants!

Gorgeous! Great job in growing healthy plants and delivering without any harm
Its shipped very well, and adapted to my window sill very quickly. Healthy, no bugs, no disease. It comes in a small plastic 1 gallon pot. I personally divided the main bush into smaller pieces and lined a window box with them.
