Liriope, according to description, flowers in late summer, however my plant (which looks the part in every way) flowers in April/May and blooms expire by June and foliage droops (but still green). Is this a plant other than Liriope, or are there other characteristics that apply to this species?

This video also declares that Liriope looks like Grape Hyacinth flowers.

That looks like the wild hyacinth (Russian or Spanish). The foliage will generally wilt totally. Because they are in my beds I pull and discard the tops. The bulbs are prolific and can be a nuisance in some gardens or a wonderful asset. They have been both in my garden.
