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).
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.Post a Comment
