Tricyrtis ‘Lightning Strike’


Toad-lily

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.522.400


Toad-lilies are unique and easy perennials for growing in shady areas. Leafy, arching stems produce a fall display of bizarre star-shaped flowers, excellent for cutting. They deserve a special place where they can be appreciated up close, like beside a patio or at the edge of a bed. This selection features soft mauve flowers above leaves boldly streaked in green and gold. Beautiful in the garden, but also useful for cutting. In colder zones this may need protection from early frosts to bloom reliably. Clumps may be easily divided every 3 to 4 years in early spring.
