Japanese Toad Lily (Tricyrtis Hirta) 50 seeds (#1530)

Exotic, star shaped lily-like flowers create an exciting display, just when other perennials begin to fade. Long lived and undemanding shade plants, they can also be used as cutflowers.
From the World Botanics range.
The complex flowers of this beautiful fall-blooming ornamental add interest to shaded gardens.
Japanese toadlily is an herbaceous woodland perennial that originates from Japan. It produces clumps of upright to arching stems lined with lightly hairy green leaves. In late summer to fall, intricate orchid-like flowers appear along the stems at the base of the leaves. The blooms are commonly white with maroon-purple spots and have prominent three parted stigmas that rise from the center of each.
This underused ornamental needs partial to full shade and thrives in evenly moist, organic-rich loam. Avoid alkaline and very wet soils. In cold regions a leaf mulch should be placed over the roots during winter; spring sprouting is late to occur. Plant it the dappled shade of woodland settings along with other perennials for shade, such as hosta, foamflower, maidenhair fern and lungwort. It is most impressive when planted in large sweeping masses.
