Liriope Muscari "Majestic" I believe. Did this project over 10 years ago. I'll post more pics of this project/space, plus one before.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Great Design Plant: Boxwood
What to plant with it. If you've shaped your boxwood hedge to have a crisp, manicured edge, you may want to have some softer forms adjacent to it for contrast, like mounds of mondo grass. If the boxwood marks a line between lawn and woodland, it is a nice contrast to woodland shrubs with natural undulating silhouettes like rhododendrons.If you are framing ornamental trees, dogwoods and redbuds look wonderful with boxwood. Other evergreens create a wonderfully rich, year-round texture palette with boxwood.
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to Texas Gardener's February Checklist
Shear and shape plants. Prune immature fruit trees if necessary and shear evergreen shrubs to maintain shape. Ornamental grasses, as well as perennials like esperanza (Tecoma stans), firebush (Hamelia patens) and salvia (Salvia gregii), can be cut back to about 12 inches. Herbs like rosemary, oregano, savory and thyme will also appreciate a late-winter trimming. Be sure to avoid pruning your spring-flowering trees and shrubs at this time, as doing so will remove their flower power until next year.
Noelle Johnson Landscape Consulting added this to Southwest Gardener's February Checklist
Mid- to high deserts (3,000 to 6,000 feet). Lightly prune evergreen shrubs, such as boxwood (Buxus spp) and dwarf yaupon (Ilex vomitoria); it will stimulate attractive new growth for spring. Deciduous shade trees should be pruned in February too. Remove any diseased, dead or crossing branches.Get a head start on spring by planting vegetable and flower seeds indoors eight weeks before the last average frost date. Beans, cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes do well when started indoors. Check a vegetable planting calendar for information on when to plant in your zone.Shown: Boxwood (Buxus microphylla)
