I am trying to buy liriope. I keep reading that gallon pots of it contain at least 4 bibs. What is a bib?

This is simply a propagation term used by commercial growers in the trade. Nurseries will divide the crowns of plants, like liriope, and then trim the leaves and roots to make a single plantlet, which they refer to as a 'bib.' So when you hear them say a pot contains 4 bibs, they are simply saying there are 4 little plantlets in the pot.
