Liriope muscari 'Variegata' Lily Turf Coming Strong

My variegated lily turf Liriope muscari 'Variegata' is coming up in full force and looking good. The leaves are noticably thicker than last year, and only 1 out of the 10 died in the back island around the river birch.

Check out these two photos, one from April 19 and the other from today. Nice! Not as fast as the hydrangea but still moving pretty quick. These are supposed to be evergreen so it will be interesting to see if they make it through next winter with better roots.

My goal is to not over water them! Last summer I watered them so much they got all curly and flat, sort of pushed down in a twirly mat rather than standing upright like grass.
