The Q&A Archives: green foliage edging

Question: I am looking for green foliage edging to plant along my sidewalk going up to my house. Something like in the spider plant plant family, but I don't want it to get very big. Maybe, 5 inches, not much bigger. What do you suggest?

Answer: Have you considered Lirope (lily turf)? These plants form evergreen clumps with narrow green leaves. They blossom in summer and come in both white and purple varieties.
