  • Billy Can 'Evergreen Giant'

    Billy Can® grasses are made for Aussie backyards and look great in both contemporary and eclectic garden layouts.

    Use them for garden border plantings, or as a filler in-between shrubs. 

    Popular edging plant

    Evergreen Giant (Liriope muscari) is a popular garden solution for edging paths and gardens or underplanting around trees. This attractive evergreen perennial has a clump forming habit that produces glossy, grass-like arching leaves. During spring and summer the foliage provides a perfect base to a profusion of violet-purple flowers held high on spikes.  As a ground cover plant 40cm apart for a fine-textured look, Evergreen Giant will retain this appearance for many years. This variety is very forgiving in high traffic areas as it will bounce back if trodden on!

    Best growing conditions

    Liriope Evergreen Giant prefers a full sun to part shade location with well drained soils. This hardy variety is tolerant to drought and frost, it is also suitable for coastal gardens. Evergreen Giant requires minimal care once established. Climate Zone: 1, 2, 4

    How to plant

    Plant at 40cm for an excellent coverage when used as an understory groundcover. Evergreen Giant is very versatile as it is ideal for edging pathways, driveways, above retaining walls or for ground stabalisation when planted as drifts on embankments. 

    Co-plant with other Billy Can® varieties

    For excellent foliage contrast, co-plant Evergreen Giant with the bright gold and green striped fine foliage of Carex Everoro or the strong, upright arching habit of the brilliant green Lomandra Lime Jet.
