Big starry flowers in late summer/early fall that are white but heavily spotted with purple which coupled with the yellowish throat makes this an outstanding Toad Lily. This loves a rich moist soil and has sprawling arching stems that bear lots of flowers. An exotic look for sure.
The flowers on this Japanese selection are very richly spotted in purple and the translation to English of the name 'Sky Full of Stars' is both poetic and perfect. Strong stems to 2 feet or more makes this a perfect candidate for cutting if you can bring yourself to do so. We can't but we don't want to hold you back. Rich, moist, part sun & zone 5-8b.
This rarity was collected by Crug Farm near Hualien in eastern Taiwan and has the largest flowers of all the Crug Farm Tricyrtis at over 2" across and so they Asian-named it for its whopping big flowers. Pale flowers heavily spotted in maroon with a slight yellow throat. Layers of flowers on lax stems from Jul-Nov.
A collection of this vigorous Taiwan Toadie from Dan Hinkley. This is quite rhizomatous making a good clump quickly which is really what you want, as the more sturdy stems clad in darkly spotted leaves holding speckled lavender-pink flowers in late summer, the better, we always say. Light shade and can take a lot of sun if given ample water.
Toadlily. Our collection of this variable species exhibiting flower colors from white to light yellow to amber yellow with tepals, stamens and style bejeweled by a generous spattering of maroon spots. At this point for you, it is a lucky dip as to color but we will be doing selections and cutting propagation down the line.
A Toadlily from a UBC collection in Sichuan which is a superior foliage plant with bold black mottlings especially vivid on the new growth. In bright shade to part sun this has strong vertical stems which have late summer buff to amber-brown flowers. This is pretty neat.
Toad Lily. Our collection from Asia This toadie was found on the lower flanks of the mountain we were exploring where it favored openings in the forest where it got dappled light and a brief bit of direct sun.
