Lilyturf grows best in good soil with average moisture but tolerates poor soils and dry conditions. One of its greatest benefits is its shade tolerance. It grows readily in partial or full shade and creates a good groundcover under trees. The evergreen leaves can appear weather beaten with time. When this happens it is best to shear or mow plants back in fall or early spring to allow new fresh leaves to emerge.
- Light Needs: Partial Sun, Partial Shade, Full Shade
