Planting and Care
PLANTING, ideal time for planting Liriope plants is early spring. Select an area with FULL SUN, Liriope plants are easily grown in well drained soils, avoid wet soggy soils, once established Liriope plants are highly adaptable and drought resistant. When planting dig a hole 6-12 inches wider than your new plant's root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is parallel with the ground level, this is very important, planting the plant deeper than the original top soil line may severely damage the tree. Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated upright, use the excavated soil to back fill around the root ball, tamp down to ensure air pockets are eliminated, 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. A 2-3 inch layer of organic hardwood mulch is strongly recommended, it will help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply the mulch over the entire planting area.
Sunlight: Variegated Liriope thrives in partial shade to full shade conditions. It can tolerate some sunlight, but too much direct sun may cause leaf scorching.
Soil: Well-drained soil is essential for the healthy growth of Big Blue Liriope. It can adapt to various soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils.
Watering: Water your liriope plant twice a week during the first 2 months to establish a strong root system. Once established rainfall should suffice, Variegated Liriope Liriope is relatively drought-tolerant. However, regular watering during dry spells will help maintain its lush appearance, you should always verify the top 2-3 inches of soil, if dry to the touch is time to water.
Maintenance: Trim back any brown or damaged leaves in early spring before new growth appears. Dividing the clumps every few years will prevent overcrowding and promote healthier growth.
Winter Protection: Applying a layer of mulch around the base of the plant in late fall can help protect the roots during cold winters.
Fertilize your plants during spring before new growth begins. Applying a slow-release, 180 days duration, well balance fertilizer is probably the simplest solution and least expensive.
