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.
Our collection from Taiwan of this species which was formerly ascribed to T. stolonifera but is now merged into the variable T. formosana. Good clumper via - you guessed it - stolons with mottled leaves especially on new growth. Upright stems with light purple flowers heavily spotted with darker purple.
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.
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.
Fabulous Toad Lily with long arching almost hanging stems which have large broadly tubular rich yellow flowers sprinkled with red spotting in the interior. Yea verily. Perfect in a semi-shaded moist situation where it can spill, arch and hang.
Uncommon Toad Lily that is is uncommonly hard to find as well as uncommonly beautiful. Bold broad leaves clasp sturdy stems which support big yellow flowers at their terminus. Less vigorous than its brethren it is nonetheless plenty stout of heart and a true jewel in the garden.
A good Toad Lily for the garden which comes as no surprise as molecular analysis puts it in section Hirtae of Tricyrtis which includes the proven performers, T. hirta, T. formosana and T. lasiocarpa. White flowers whose white base coat is nearly obscured by maroon speckling. 2-4 hours of sun is good in a rich moist soil.
