Going Down Fighting...

Our garden doesn't just throw in the towel when the night-time temperatures sink towards the forties or even high thirties; these dwindling late fall days are when Tricyrtis macrantha ssp. macranthopsis truly shines. a native of Japan, here in our garden its shiny foliage spills down from a rocky hillside, showing its waxy, bright yellow flowers with their deep red spots.

This one is incredible, I've never seen it before. You add more plants to my wish list...
It is very unique, as are a lot of your beautiful plants. Beautiful fall color. Speaking of going down with a fight, those top blooms almost look like a boxer's speed bag. :)
That is an amazing flower. I surely haven't done my homework, have I? I've never seen this, nor some of the others you've recently posted!

Say, by the way! I've just started a "Summer Inspiration 2008" meme. (I'm not sure what that word means.) Anyway... I've just posted about my visit to your garden! ;-) You could help me out a bit, if you're willing to put in that amount of work. ha.
That really is a gorgeous flower.
Agree w/ the others -- this is a beautiful plant. That yellow is so bright and cheery.
OMG, what a gorgeous bloom!
A beautiful chrome yellow-flowered Toadlily?
The closed buds are even cooler than the flowers, Don -hope every single one gets its chance to open.
