PURE BLONDE™ is a contrast groundcover Liriope
PURE BLONDE™ Liriope muscari ‘LIRBLONDE’
Don’t judge a book by its cover, this plant is tough!
Pure Blonde™ Liriope is not a weak plant, unlike most light coloured plants that are. It is a tough Liriope that works in almost any situation. If you cut this plant back to the ground in July, it will re-shoot pure blonde in August to September depending on where you live.
The colour contrast is amazing. Imagine it amongst Black Mondo. The key to Pure Blonde™ Liriope is that it stays blonde for about 3 months in spring, then it slowly turns green. By summer it is mainly green, which helps it do well in the hot weather. In Autumn there are often new greenish blonde shoots.
