Toad Lily (Tricyrtis)

Toad lilies need part to full shade, soil that is rich in organic matter, and consistent moisture. They are a great addition to a shade or woodland garden. They need no staking or other special care. Though the flowers are small, the arching stems are a welcome sight when much of the garden is foliage. Plant them near a path so you will be drawn to the flowers as you pass. Clumps split in spring will bloom in fall the same year. Reportedly, deer and rabbits find them tasty, but I haven’t had a problem with rabbits in my garden.
