|Diseases & Insects:
||No serious diseases or pests occur for creeping lilyturf.|
||Groundcover with many uses; good in heavy shade, can look especially nice when given proper cultural conditions. Creeping lilyturf also tolerates heat, humidity, and drought. |
||Best in deep, soft soil with an elevated drainage.|
||Prune regularly to keep within bounds. The evergreen foliage often turns brown in late winter; old foliage can be cut back or mowed at a high setting before new shoots appear early spring.|
||Act at the end of the winter, or in autumn, adding some manure, or a slow release fertilizer to the ground. In the spring, add fertilizers rich in phosphorous in nitrogen.
||Start at the farthest away area and plant the 'groundcover' evenly and outwards (like painting yourself into a corner). Water well, and remember to water regularly until they have started to grow.
