Liriope Spicata...what to expect?
This past September 1st or so I planted over 100 plugs of liriope spicata in the strip between the sidewalk and street in front of my house. The area receives full sun. I did not amend the soil, just ran a cultivator through it and pulled as many of the weeds/grass that was there as I could.
After planting, I watered them regularly for a while and they stayed green, maybe grew a little, but did not proceed to conquer the planet as I expected. They are still green looking after all this winter snow, but still not much bigger than when I planted them.
My question is whether I can expect them to "leap" in the spring and really take hold of the area, or if I should be considering plan B for that strip? I know they prefer part shade, and this area is full sun. Any thoughts? How bullet-proof is liriope spicata? Can I look forward to it taking off?
Thanks so much in advance,
