Comments: This new yellow-edged variety is just about the brightest thing to hit the edging and ground cover world in years. Use as ground cover edging, in borders and container plant. When it is sheared to remove damaged or unsightly growth, do it in late winter before new growth starts. Leaf and crown rot diseases have become a serious problem with this and other liriopes in recent years. It acts slowly affecting on a few plants causing leaves to turn yellow and the plant to rot at ground level and die. No effective treatment at this time. It is believed that the diseases come in with plants form nursery or other sources. Anthracnose also attacks the foliage causing it to have brown areas.
