Toad Lily

We need flowers year round.  It just makes life a little bit better.  Tricyrtis is a perennial that blooms for us during August, September and October and can grow in partial shade.  Exciting, right? When I saw this one blooming it had an abundance of flowers that were dripping off the stem.   A nice contrast to the bright, warm colors of echinacea and rudbeckia.  A beautiful lily-like flower and spotted like a toad? Smells like a toad? Has a small home in your garden like a toad?  I’m not sure where the Toad part comes in, but it’s a little cutie.  This plant grows between 1 and 3 feet and is an important nectar source for hummingbirds and butterflies.
