Toad lilies at the Plant Sale


Tricyrtus formosana, above, and Tricyrtus alba, below. Find them at the OGC plant sale!

Toad lilies look nothing like toads and are an excellent filler for a difficult shady area. They have the additional benefit of blooming when a lot of other flowers have given up for the season.

Cut these vigorous, rhizomatous plants back after flowering.
