Does anyone know what's wrong with my Liriope muscari? The old leaves have these lesions. I cut all back and put it in the dustbin to be sure. They're in shade most of the day (after 10am), clay soil and not too dry.

The Liriope plants that I grow here in NE Mississippi, zone 8a, have older, lower leaves that look like that in the late fall/winter. I typically will simply run the lawn mower over all the plants in late winter/early spring (before new growth begins), so that the new growth's appearance isn't diminished by that old, tattered, older growth Liriope is also prone to leaf spot, but again, for me at least, this typically is on older growth.

I don't have gray hair, I have wisdom-highlights. I must be very wise.

It looks like old growth. Prepare for fresh new growth to come! Here is how my lirope are looking right now, a mix of old and new growth.

Yep, that's what it looks like in the early spring...........often much worse depending on the extremes of cold and dry conditions.
