Foliage Followup

A few days ago, when I posted a picture of the late fall blooming of Tricyrtis Lemon Twist, I mentioned its striking, waxy, spotted foliage in the spring. I lamented that I had no picture to show of its foliage, but I guess I should have checked my picture files before saying that: here it was in April. It looks rather like one of the spotted foliage species of erythronium (dog tooth violet). Posted by Picasa

Very cool. I like.
Janet... you really wouldn't think "toad lily", when you see it in the spring... or at least it makes you remember that tricyrtis IS in the lily family.
