Lovely Toad?

It's not often you'll find the words "lovely" and "toad" used together, but in the case of Tricyrtis Mine no Yuki, it's appropriate. This toad lily is a newer Tricyrtis hirta hybrid from Japan, and its very pale pink flowers with strawberry pink spots are lovely indeed, contrasting nicely with the very dark green foliage. Our plant is in quite deep shade, yet blooms without fail and gets bigger and better every year.

This is very very pretty. I can't keep up with the number of tricyrtis you write about... too many to add to my wish list at one time! ha.

My little 'variegata' is blooming for the first time I can remember! :-)
Shady... It's kind of surprising they aren't more grown; there are quite a few that bloom early enough to escape frosts.
