Tricyrtis formosana-Toad-lily

Propagating toad-lily to increase the color and diversity of your landscaping is done in the spring by dividing the clump although it is a slow grower and should be planted so they can be seen from the house or outside sitting areas. They reach a height of 16"-20" and come in purple/white. They can be used as cut flowers but like most perennials they don’t last long once cut. Toad-lilies bloom in the fall up until frost and although they are hardy down to Zone 5 but they could use extra protection against deep frost and prefer shade and rabbits do not munch on them. They prefer a moist rich well draining soil on the acid side like azaleas.
