The upright stems of T. hirta Miyazaki Hybrids are lined with white blooms that are speckled and spotted with maroon. They show best when planted near a path, where their amazing blossoms can be admired at close range.
Gardeners seeking plants for shade are always pleased to discover Toad Lilies. Despite their common name (probably suggested by the spotted blooms), they offer striking flowers and produce them in fall, when most shade gardens could use a point of interest. Tricyrtis make excellent cut flowers (in Japan, they are grown commercially to supply the florist's trade). Plants prefer evenly moist, slightly acid soil.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone.

Susieq from Lewiston, NY (Old zone 5a, new zone designation 6a)
I've owned this plant for at least 10 years now and really enjoy its cascading branches covered with the orchid-like flowers that grow down the center. It blooms at a time of year when most perennials are winding down. This plant is a shade lover, low growing, and doesn't seem to be bothered by insects or diseases. Slow to multiply, it doesn't require constant dividing.
