These late bloomers are worth the wait!
When it comes to shady spots, ferns and hostas are obvious choices. But neither can offer
the unique blooms and exotic colour patterns of Tricyrtis, more commonly known as toad lilies!
Just when many summer flowers are winding down for the season, these belated beauties start
popping up in unexpected shady places—their spotted petals and rich colours adding interest to
the late-summer landscape.
Hardy in zones 3-9, toad lilies are native to woodland areas, but are ideal for shady borders and
paths where their clusters of orchidlike blooms can be viewed up close. Expect 10-16 petite,
5-6 cm flowers on each stem in groups of four or five. These low-maintenance perennials
require no staking or deadheading, and they are not troubled by disease or hungry deer. So
find a shady spot and enjoy their speckled splendour each year from late summer to frost!
Unexpected and Uncommonly Beautiful!
Tricyrtis, or Toad Lilies, add
colour and interest to areas
of the garden that are often
forgotten. The four varieties
we've "spotted" for our new
Toad Lily Collection feature
rich jewel tones in unusual
patterns—from mildly mottled
to spectacularly speckled!
Line your shady borders and
pathways with these unique and
easy-to-grow perennials, and
your late-summer landscape
will come alive with exotic
beauty that lasts for weeks!
This collection includes 2 each of the following varieties:
Raspberry Mousse: A one-of-a-kind toad lily without the traditional toad lily spots! This vigorous
grower sports star-shaped, rich red-purple, petite blooms. Grows 60 cm tall.
Blue Wonder: The best blue toad lily we've found! Cool, star-shaped, spotted blooms look like they were made for shade! Grows 60 cm tall.
Taipei Silk: Intricate flowers are more "freckled" than spotted, with blue and purple petals
highlighted by a pop of yellow in the centre. Grows 45-60 cm tall.
Golden Festival: Our unique yellow variety stands out among blue and purple blooms—and there's hardly a space between its myriad maroon freckles. Grows 45-65 cm tall.
