Toad lily (Tricyrtis 'Tojen')
try-SIR-tiss
Synonyms:  T. 'Togen'
Genus:  Tricyrtis
This luminous hybrid bears unspotted, orchid-like lavender flowers with yellow-throated bases. It has unusually large and clean leaves, which look great all season. It grows up to 3 feet tall, although its lovely, almost weeping, habit keeps the plant's height closer to 2 or 2.5 feet. It grows to about 3 feet wide. Toad lilies make subtle but exotic specimens for woodland borders and other shady sites.
Care:  Provide moist, but well-drained soil, in partial to full shade. Mulch plants in cold climates with little snow cover.
Propagation:  Sow seed when fresh in a cold frame. Divide when still dormant in early spring.
Problems:  Slugs, snails.
