Tricyrtis gives you a double bonus: fall color in the shade! Distinctive burgundy spots (a hallmark of toad lilies) are splattered over exotic blooms in shades of purple, yellow and blue. They open all along stems up to 2' long, and they do it in early to late fall, when most everything in the garden is done. 18-28" tall. 18-24" wide. Likes moist, humus-rich soil. Full to partial shade. Zones 5-9. Ships bareroot. Tricyrtis
Grows well in shade. They had hundreds of small blooms. I had ordered 9 plants and all of them were the same color, White with purple spots. I was disappointed that I did not get a variety of colors. Otherwise, they look nice blended in with other perenniels.

they came up and bloomed but very disappointed in the color. They are all the same (cream w/ blue spots). Nothing like the colorful ones shown in the catalog

You'll want to exam these fall showoffs right up close.I'd recommend this for planting right next to your garden's seating area.We had similar results in Zone 6.Sparse tiny blooms,kind of lame 1st year.Transplanted to a morning sun flower bed and Wow! This fall over a dozen blooms!

Similar results here in Zone 6;At first kind of lame: tiny and sparse late-season dazzling blooms.I'd suggest it for adding it to a planter in a shady spot right next to your seating area. The 1st year the plant struggled to offer 3 or 4 blooms. I replanted it amongst crocus,salvia and Black-eyed susans.This Fall as the other flowers gave out,dozens of speckled blooms appeared.

Last year I planted this and even though it did produce a few blooms it was weak from the very beginning and the leaves often began to die back. I thought it would not return this spring...boy was I wrong! It has returned and is healthier than ever! I cannot wait to see how well it does this year.
Beautiful but small

I bought the toad lillies about 4 years ago. They are vigorous growers in mostly shade in zone 5. They do multiply gradually, are not invasive. The flowers are beautiful conversation pieces and very photogenic--but are small, not easily visible from any distance away.
Resillient despite some neglect

I bought these for my last house (same zone), and instead of nurturing them in a pot first (which I should have done), I just planted them in the ground. The first year, I didn't have any growth and I was disappointed. The next year, they popped up, and had the cutest little bizarre blooms on them! I had these in a full shade area, NO sun whatsoever, and they did great! I might get some more for my new house when I can find a proper area for good shade.

These are very unique little flowers, the actual plant is not that pretty to look at, but the little flowers make up for it!
Avid growth rate

I planted my toad lilies in a pot as soon as I got them and they took off with growth, several of them shooting upwards from the roots. The first week of April I shall plant them in one of my gardens and look forward to seeing their lovely, exotic blooms.
