Liriope can be cut back to the ground in late winter to remove all the old ragged foliage. A lawn mower or weed eater is a fast and easy way to cut the plants back. New growth will return in early spring to begin filling back in. If you wait until the new growth is already coming back in you can still cut the entire plant back but the ends of the new growth will be ragged and not as attractive as it would if the plants had been cut back earlier. A little fertilizing in spring and mid summer can increase growth and speed the development of a fuller plant.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
