Liriope Mystery

Above are 3 pictures of mystery Liriope. No one has been able to identify the species or hybrid. As you can see, It has no fantastic quality when the whole border is in bloom. But WOW does it have striking blue fruit. I have also included a closeup of the buds. No one has been able to identify this despite the best efforts over the years of the now retired garden editor of the local paper. It spreads rhyzomatously so it has filled as an outside border for a wooden border of a butterfly garden. It gets no special care.
