According to the investigation results, it was established their limited use is real in ornamental horticulture of the central and northern areas throughout Krasnodar region; some differences in the vegetation periods were revealed, and some agrotechnical measures for plantings care were proposed. The most promising were Liriope graminifolia and Ophiopogon japonicus, as well as the cultivars ‘Pusillus’ (O. japonicas) and ‘Nigrescens’ (O. planiscapus), the smaller resistance of which is compensated by high ornamental qualities.
