we have just planted this border of Lirope but are yet to mulch
(and remove the excess clay :!: as well as redo the entire front garden, hence the dead lawn :)

It will look super when filled in Jasalim
What's the diff with Lirope & Mondo. Is one more hardy or more tropical, tolerate more sun/shade then the other?

I have Lirope growing well but hasn't been through a winter, i wonder if it would be hardier all round then the Mondo?
They prob much the same from what other say about the Mondo.

Probably the same planting requirements I reckon. Liriopes have pretty purple flowers.
