Silly me-I just looked through the plant data base, and realized I had planted a varigated toad lily: tricyrtis hirta variegata, and sure enough when I went back to look at the leaves they had white varigation along the edges. I went ahead and downloaded the picture as well as a better one showing the varigation into the plant data base.

I have one toad lily and it sets pods, but I never get there before they fall off. :( of course, it's not this one, but I would love to know if there's a trick to catching the seeds.
