Central Phoenix -- Liriope muscari Monroe White has done very well for me. I have a 20 year old clump that is about 18 inches diameter. It blooms every year. It grows in partial shade, with a bit of sun about noon. It is watered every other week in summer and is not watered in winter, except for whatever rain we might get. It doesn't seem to mind either the summer heat or the winter frosts.
