MORE INFORMATION

With its showy pale flowers that open from dark purple buds in autumn, Tricyrtis or the 'toad lily' provides bags of late season interest for any part of the garden in light or even full shade.

Held aloft on wiry 5cm tall stems, the star-shaped flowers are attractively spotted purple, and rise above clumps of glossy, heavily grooved green leaves. This perennial thrives when planted in damp, moisture-retentive soil and is suitable for growing in shady borders, woodland gardens, under shrubs or in soil close to the pond.

Despite possessing exotic-looking blooms, the toad lily is as tough as old boots although if you live in a cold part of the country or have an exposed garden, it's best to cover plants with a thick mulch over winter.

Supplied as three established plants in 9cm pots, ready for planting out.

Care Guide

Planting Advice:

  • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds. Incorporate some well-rotted manure to enrich the soil if necessary.
  • When planting a number of perennials, arrange them on the surface so you can see how they will look before planting.
  • Individually knock out each plant from its container. Look at the roots if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the rootball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the rootball.
  • The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Water in well to settle the soil and prevent desiccation.

Aftercare Advice:

  • Remove faded flowers regularly to encorage more.
  • Mulch plants over winter in colder areas
