I think is a genetic form of liriope gigantea. I'm not sure which variety.

I see wooly thyme(soft and cushy to walk on, smells of lght lemon), mother of thyme-mine is like the purple red here, and maybe a bit of lemon thyme on the pathway and some babys tears or blue star at the bottom-all of these grow easily, quicker than you may think and require no upkeep-huge plus in the pacific northwest they mind neither sun, rain nor our winter weather-mine are all planted in soil/sand mix past the 1st 2 wks I have never watered them. This is a gorgeous picture!

More groundcover between rocks: It's the ideal solution for filling gaps in your hardscape that you don't want taken over by weeds. What are your thoughts on replacing some or all of your existing lawn with one of these grass alternatives? More: Ornamental Grasses in the Landscape
