Description
This hardy, clump forming, herbaceous perennial associates beautifully with grasses. Its dainty bell shaped blooms in summer are followed by dark inky-blue berries. Evergreen Lilyturf creates a spectacular feature plant at the front of borders, producing 60% truly black grass-like foliage with the remaining leaves an attractive, darker green shade. Ophiopogon planiscapus ‘Nigrescens’ makes a useful addition to winter containers, adding colour, texture and structure during the coldest months. Height: 20cm (8”). Spread: 30cm (12”).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Ophiopogon plants in any rich, fertile non-alkaline soil in full sun or semi-shade. Lilyturf enjoys reliably moist, but well-drained conditions.

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. The growth points of most bare root perennials should be set about an inch below the soil surface. New growth will appear in spring.

More Info

Lilyturf requires little aftercare but will appreciate a dry mulch of bark chips or leaf mould in autumn. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps in spring when necessary.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
