I try not to be a plant snob but I don't know.....

Maybe it's not so much plant snobbery as "familiarity breeding contempt". If I'd never seen liriope before and saw this stand flowering in the Japanese Woodland, I'm pretty sure I'd feel like I'd really stumbled on something special. The problem is that I have seen acres of liriope and I guess I'm just jaded. It is nicer though, here amongst mixed plantings in an open woodland, than it is in a row in the sun between turf and a concrete sidewalk.
