Toad Lily Seeds - Tricyrtis Hirta / Shade Perennial / Deer Resistant

These perennial herbaceous plants, native to Asia (from the Himalayas to Japan and the Philippines), are generally found in shady conditions on the edge of forests. Of the 16-20 species, only two (and their hybrids) used to be commonly grown as garden ornamentals, primarily for their orchid-like blossoms which open in fall after most other plants have finished blooming.

These grow from creeping rhizomes, forming a clump of foliage that slowly expands over time. It is a highly variable plant that can reach a height of 12”-36”, emerging late in the spring. It produces arching, unbranched stems with alternate leaves all along the stems in a ladder-like arrangement. The 3-6 inch long, light green leaves are oval to oblong with parallel veins and clasping leaf bases. The stems often arch in the same direction, creating a graceful, flowing appearance.

The flowers open in late summer to early fall, lasting for about three weeks or until a hard frost (both the leaves and flowers are damaged below 28ºF).
