Tricyrtis formosana ‘Gilty Pleasure’


Gold-leaved Toad-lily

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.522.360


Toad-lilies are unique and rewarding plants for late-season display in the shady garden. This selection forms a mound of yellow to gold leaves, looking attractive all season. Starfish like flowers appear in late summer, shaded soft mauve-pink with darker spotting. Deserves a spot where it can be seen up close. Excellent as a cut flower. Toad-lilies are among the last perennials to bloom, so they give gardeners something fresh and exciting to end the season. USPP#13688: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
