Tricyrtis are perennial plants, native to Taiwan that make a bold statement within shady areas of your garden. They are better known as the ‘Toad Lily’. Clusters of star-shaped blooms gather together atop willowy arching stems and architectural mounds of glossy foliage, flourishing from August to October. They are best suited to flower beds and borders or as underplanting of roses and shrubs. You should expect to see Tricyrtis grow to an approximate height and spread of 60cm (24”).
Tricyrtis are best planted in moist, well-drained soil of sand, loam and chalk within an acidic or neutral PH balance. They should be planted 7cm (3”) deep and spaced approximately 15-20cm (6-8”) apart. Water deeply and thoroughly at the time of planting to settle the soil in place. Tricyrtis prefer a position of part shade or full sun, releasing divine colour for often dull and neglected spaces in the garden.
Tricyrtis are easy to maintain once they are fully established. Tricyrtis will benefit from a regular watering schedule where soil should be kept moist, especially during periods of drought. During the spring, it is recommended to apply a layer of mulch to keep the soil cool and moist. When flowers fade, prune stalks off at the base, letting the foliage die back on its own.
