"Toad lilies" are shade garden necessities. In contrast to most woodland plants that try to flower first thing in spring before deciduous trees shade them out, Tricyrtis waits until late summer to show off its intricate spotted flowers. Here in our cool climate we can grow them in full sun with enough moisture but most gardeners will prefer to plant them in rich soil in the shade garden. Once established they will tolerate some drying out, but prefer even moisture on well drained soil. Plant them where they can be appreciated at close range as the flowers are just fascinating. 'Autumn Glow' actually glows all summer long with its clean yellow variegation.
