Liriope muscari

When I was not particularly looking for or hoping to see flowers, something like this had to appear before my eyes. At first, I did not believe that they were flowers for somehow I had always thought that these plants produce only tiny white flowers. Imagine my surprise when closer inspection showed that I had stumbled upon a treasure trough.

Common names: Lilyturf, Border Grass
