    While this is a great ground cover plant, it does need to be planted with care, as it can be aggressive in some areas. However, if you place it in an area with more sun than shade, it tends to grow a bit slower, making it easier to control when mixed with other plantings. I want to say your lilies and irises will be fine with this plant, but it all depends on the growing conditions in your area and the variety grown. I have grown it without any problems, while others have had a difficult time with it.
