Liriope in morning light
Liriope is a genus of strappy evergreen perennial plants. Despite the delicate beauty and tiny size of the flowers, these are incredibly tough and hardy and will grow very happily in a wide range of soil and environmental conditions. Seen here growing in my garden.
Native to East Asia, they are an understory plant in China, Japan and Korea. Growing to around 40 cm in height.
