Had some lily turf delivered today, should it have the rust looking bits on the leaves and will it be ok?

    Hi Dano28 i have a young one and the leaves are not ridged like your photo.
    looks more like a Sedge, to me.
    I could be wrong though!

    Did you order Liriope or Ophiopogon which are both commonly called lilyturf?

    Your photo looks like neither.

    Thank you for the comments.

    I ordered Liriope Muscari 2L pot and a 9 cm pot Liriope muscari Monroe White.

    I suggest you let the supplier know immediately that you are concerned the plant delivered is not as ordered.   Then it's up to you whether you wait and see or ask for a refund or replacement.

    Seems to be 2 plants in the pot.
    Fine pointed leaves may be Liriope.

    The blunt leaf tips suggest liriope to me. The broad leaves could be a bit of fasciation.

    The rusty spots could potentially signify a disease which can end up disfiguring the plants, or they may just be cultural. The trimmed leaves could show they've attempted to tidy them up for sale, cutting off the worst bits. I would return both just to be on the safe side.
