Full Description

Tricyrtis flowers, commonly called toad lily, are most unusual with small sepals often spotted like toads. Native to Taiwan and hardy in zones 4-9, these plants can naturalize over time, forming upright stems from underground rhizomes. The lance-shape leaves are glossy, bright green with parallel veins and hairy undersides that often have a beautiful striped appearance. Plant in full sun to part shade. Provide steady moisture until well-established.

Tricyrtis formosana
Life Cycle
Tricyrtis, Formosana is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slow grow This little beauty looked great in the catalog but is taking forever to grow. It is the slowest growing plant I have ever seen. I do hope the bloom will be worth the wait. Planted as instructed. It has about 5 leaves and is only about an inch and a half tall. I am hopeful, maybe it didn't like the late May snowfall and the excessive heat we've had lately.
