Bold yellow, white and green striped foliage. Does best in afternoon shade. Bloom spikes appear in the summer.
Lily-turf can be grown in either sun or shade, though it prefers light shade and rich, moist soil. Spreading will be slower in full shade. This is an ideal plant for southern regions due to its extreme tolerance of heat, humidity, and drought. Insects and diseases do not seem to bother this plant either, so it is very low maintenance. In the spring, the foliage may be cut back or mowed down if it has discolored over the winter. A new flush of growth will quickly reappear.
