Noted for its luminous variegated foliage, Ophiopogon jaburan 'Vittatus' (Giant Lilyturf) is a giant Mondo Grass forming dense tufts of arching, ribbon-like, cream to yellow striped leaves. Racemes of small, lilac-tinted white flowers emerge amid the leaves in summer before giving way to electric berries along the flowering scapes. Reminiscent of Liriope, this charming evergreen grass is tough, durable and perfect for adding texture to the garden. Quite pleasing to the senses as it ripples in the wind, Giant Lilyturf  is a great choice for mass plantings and makes an excellent, long-lasting groundcover. Lovely as an accent clump or for edging.

  • Grows up to 1-2 ft. tall and wide (30-60 cm) to form a weed-proof mat.
  • Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to full shade. Partial shade to full shade are appreciated in hot summer climates. Water the plants regularly for best growth, but established plants are tolerant of short periods of drought.
  • Deer and rabbit resistant
  • Great for beds and borders, edging, groundcovers, underplanting shrubs, city gardens, rock gardens or Asian gardens. 
  • Virtually disease free.
  • Propagate by dividing the clumps of plants.
