Tricyrtis formosana 'Autumn Glow' Toad Lily



Tricyrtis formosana 'Autumn Glow' has long, upright arching stems of green ovate leaves with wide yellow margins. In mid-late summer purple-red spotted, creamy, triangular, orchid-like blooms appear at the stem apex. With exceptionally wide margins, Tricyrtis 'Autumn Glow' is particularly attractive even when not in bloom.

Although Tricyrtis is one of the best perennials for deep shade, 'Autumn Glow' will perform best in partial rather than full shade. Plant it near a pathway where it gets some bright light and passersby can enjoy its delightful blooms.

Tricyrtis formosana 'Autumn Glow' prefers partial shade and humus-rich, consistently moist soil for best appearance. If soil gets too dry, leaf edges will burn.

    We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

    All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

    Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

    We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
