Gardeners' Notes:

It came to Dave's Garden's attention that we had two PlantFiles entries for this Liriope - Peedee Ingot and Pee Dee Gold Ingot. When I started researching to find out if there really were two different cultivars I found many links which spelled them several different ways. This was extremely confusing.

I found in some of the links references to the hybridizer (Ursula Herz) and to her location. This morning I spoke to Mrs. Herz and asked her about the correct name(s). She emphatically stated that there was no Liriope cultivar named Pee Dee GOLD Ingot, that there was only one cultivar of this Liriope, and that its correct spelling was PeeDee Ingot.

I have therefore deleted one PlantFiles entry and revised this one to reflect the correct name.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Hudson, Florida
Safety Harbor, Florida
West Palm Beach, Florida
Lawrenceville, Georgia
Elkton, Maryland
Scott City, Missouri
Elizabeth City, North Carolina
