Liriope graminifolia, Baker (L. spicata, Lour. Dracaena graminifolia, Linn.). Lvs. all radical, linear-lanceolate, obtuse, 3-nerved, with a few brown scales at the base: stamens 6; style columnar; ovary 3-celled. B.R. 593, (as Ophiopogon spicatus). Var. densiflora, Hort. (L. spicata var. densiflora, Wright) is presumably the best form. B.M. 5348 (as Ophiopogon spicatus). There are several forms of this species, as: Var. minor (L. spicatus var. minor, Wright). L.B.C. 7:694 (as Ophiopogon spicatus); var. koreana (Wright); var. intermedia (Maxim.).—L. graminifolia should perhaps be grown in the greenhouse. It is 1 ft. or more high, with grass-like foliage and 1 or 2 scapes overtopping the lvs., which bear from July to Sept. as many as 90 violet-colored fls. in a spike-like raceme 6-12 in. long and 1 in. wide. The fls. are less than ½ in. across, 6- parted and arranged in groups of 3—5 along the raceme. They vary from dark purple through violet to whitish. The deepest color is the finest, and is set off by the yellow anthers.
