Central Phoenix -- Liriope muscari Royal Purple has been growing in my garden for about 20 years. It is now a foot diameter clump, right next to a L. muscari Monroe White, which has slightly shorter leaves. Both bloom annually. They are in partial shade, with a bit of noon sun. Water is every other week in summer and none in winter, except precipitation. It doesn't seem to mind the heat.
