Liriope spicata Lour. is often sold under the synonym of L. koreana. Native to Asia from Japan and Korea down to China and Vietnam, it also has established some escaped populations in Alabama and Illinois. It is more slender and delicate than its cousin L. muscari and has a habit of spreading through its rhizomes, resulting in the common name of Creeping Liliturf. Its flower spike usually doesn't reach above the leaves. Photos by Martin Bohnet of a plant obtained from Crûg Farm.
