Tricyrtis or Toad Lilies produce annual stems topped with lateral flowers and have a perennial rhizome. They bring color to the garden late in the year as most flower in late summer or autumn. Native of fresh, humus rich, partially shaded spots in woods of E Asia and Japan. Easy in any rich, slightly moist, yet well drained soil in partial shade.
Sow fine seeds flat in any humus-rich, well drained soil, which should be kept always slightly moist. Keep pots sunny in a protected spot outside for winter until seedlings appear in late spring, then turn to partial shade. Plant out preferably after two years after leaves have yellowed in autumn.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
