This lilyturf has silvery striped foliage. It is clump forming evergreen with grass-like leaves that gently drape over. Late summer, it produced purple flower spikes that look like Muscari – hence the species name. These are followed by black berries.
This variegated Lilyturf supposedly can withstand more sunlight than other varieties. Still – I think its name is silly.
