Fine leaf, pink flower Liriope
Compared to the standard Liriope muscari, Isabella really stands out due to its denser more compact fine leaf foliage.
In summer, Isabella has a distinctive display of showy pink flowers throughout the top of the foliage.
Should the foliage ever discolour significantly, simply cut back the plant to about 7-8cm above the ground with a sharp implement. Avoid trimming in the heat of Summer or the cold of Winter.
Isabella is drought and frost tolerant. It can tolerate occasional wet feet and is good for sunny/shady positions.
In very cold parts of Australia such as Canberra and Horsham, annual trimming may be required as Isabella can significantly discolour in Winter. Isabella has extreme cold tolerance and can cope with almost all cold areas of Australia. It also has good humidity tolerance for the tropics.
