Toad lily Tricyrtis hirta.
Recieved from Calalily this past spring, Turned out I "can" grow these little beauties after all!!
Now I want more more more!
Grown from seed, blooming Sept 2003 in Missouri. Seems lighter in color than others posted here...maybe too much shade?
Great plant for the shade garden. Very dependable.
Grown from seed several years ago...looks like I will have a lot of seeds this year.
