Lilyturf looks like grass but is a member of the lily family.

It has lavender or white spiked flowers in late summer above a sea of dark green blades.

It grows well in part shade, in any soil type and will rot if too moist.

Lilyturf is used for edging and mass planting under trees.

It spreads aggressively via rhizomes so be aware that it can be invasive.

To keep it tidy, mow it off to the ground in the late winter before the new growth begins.
