Toad Lily (Tricyrtis hirta)

Sun: Less is more! These lovely lilies like a light to moderate shade area. If you are in a southern zone, then full shade will be needed. These really help spruce up that shady corner!

Zone: One of the best plants for zones 4-9. It’s a frost hardy perennial (native from Nepal to Philippines) and thrives in the shade.

Soil: A rich well composted soil with good drainage. They like to be moist, so feel free to water, water & did we mention water?

Water: Keep evenly watered and moist. The first year or until they become established is essential for keeping moist. Once established they may tolerate a mild drought, but not for too long.

Habitat: Orchid-like flowers which are thick and bold. The flower’s color and shape can vary depending on variety. These lilies can grow up to 2-3 feet in height and width. They tend to flower in mid-summer and into or through fall.

Tip: A wonderful exotic look for any garden. This plant also gives an illusion that it’s tough to grow, but let’s face it- it doesn’t get any easier than this!
