Variegated Liriope Blooming in August

My Variegated Liriope [Liriope muscari 'Variegata'] is starting to bloom here at the end of August. It's blooming around the same time as the hot weather grasses, such as Pampas Grass and Switchgrass - but remember Lily Turf is not a grass at all.

Even the divisions I cut for the side yard are starting to bloom (my East side yard or my dry shade side). I guess that means they rooted in, so that's good news! That also means that all of my divisions so far have survived: My Karl Foerster that I gave to the neighbor's side of the utility box, both of my hosta divisions, and these two liriope.

Update 9/11/2015: Here is another photo of the variegated liriope blooming a couple weeks later. Not bad! We didn't really plant it for color, but it's actually quite attractive and you can see it from across the yard even though the flowers are very small.
