JAPANESE TOAD LILY
The Tricyrtis Hirta, commonly known as the Toad Lily or Hairy Toad Lily. This distinctive perennial plant originates from Asia and is typically found on shaded rocky cliffs and stream banks in central and southern Japan.
The Tricyrtis Hirta is a clump-forming deciduous perennial that grows to a height of 2-3 feet and spreads 1-2 feet wide. It features white to light purple six-petaled flowers that are similar to the purple-spotted Phalaenopsis orchids. The flowers are known for their striking purple spots that appear along tall, arching stems. The leaves have clasping bases and appear to be arranged in a ladder-like fashion. The entire plant is hairy, which is how it got its common name of hairy toad lily.
This plant is an excellent choice for those looking to add a unique touch to their garden. It thrives in partial to full shade and prefers moist, rich soil. The Tricyrtis Hirta is relatively easy to care for when planted in the right conditions. It requires consistent watering and benefits from being planted in areas that protect them from strong winds.
The Tricyrtis Hirta blooms in late summer to early fall, making it a great choice for adding color to your garden during these seasons. The unique blooms also make great cut flowers. However, it’s important to note that all plants in the Liliaceae family, including the Tricyrtis Hirta, are toxic to cats.
