<i>Tricyrtis</i> x ‘Sinonome’

Tricyrtis

Toad Lily

Some say this fascinating species owes its common name to the Philippine Tasaday Indians’ practice of wiping their hands with juice from the blossoms before setting out to collect frogs. Others say it’s the unusual spotted flowers that account for the name.

Whichever story is true, the blooms have such detail and quiet beauty that they should be admired close-up. They open on gently arching stems for long periods in late summer and early fall, when most other flowers are already spent. With a moist, humus-rich soil, all the Toad Lilies will form elegant clumps.

Long esteemed in Japan for its elegant cut flowers, ‘Sinonome’ presents a pleasing vase-shaped clump of upright stems lined with lustrous, clean-looking dark green foliage. Emerging from buds the color of chocolate, white, upfacing blooms show off richly colored ruby freckles. One of the more heat and drought tolerant Toadlilies, this Tricyrtis could be planted next to Aster divaricatus.

Blooms September–October.

Size: 2'–3' high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant
We love Verbascum 'Album' for their incandescent, pollinator friendly, upright blooms. With flower spikes reaching over 3-½ ft. tall, ‘Album’ is truly dramatic. Its many white flowers are tinged with crimson at the base of each petal and accented by golden orange stamens. The large basal leaves are coarse, deep green and textured. Their undulating margins, and often their stems, are tinted a deep burgundy color.
