Liriope Tips Are White

Question From: S. Vincent - Arlington, Virginia, United States
Q: I am curious when you got the question about white liriope from M. Buco in Potomac, MD. Something similar happened to our liriope this spring (see photos) and we live in Arlington, VA, which is very close to Potomac. I'm wondering if M. Buco was able to figure out what happened to cause their liriope damage.
