Wonderfully arching, hairy stems support the green, lance-shaped leaves which are arranged in a ladder-like fashion. Beginning in late summer, white, orchid-like flowers heavily spotted with purple appear all along the stems.
Genus Notes - Tricyrtis
Toad-lilies are exotic-looking and rewarding plants for late-season display in the shady garden. Native to the Himalayas to eastern Asia, they grow naturally at the edge of forests, preferring shade and rich, moist soil, hardy enough to handle the sudden changes of winter.
Excellent woodland or shade garden plants. Plants form clumps of tall, gracefully arching, stems with terminal and axillary orchid-like flowers. Perfect for late summer bloom.
