The Q&A Archives: Liriope

Question: I have liriope in my garden. I didn't cut it back in the fall. Should I do it now that spring is here or just leave it alone?

Answer: Liriope, or lily turf, are plants that form clumps or tufts of grass-like leaves, and bear white or lavender flowers in spike-like or branched clusters. The plants tend to become ragged and brown after a while, so cut back the dead foliage when new leaves begin to show in the spring.
