WOW! That's about all I could say when I received my first plant of this gold-foliaged toad lily, discovered by C.H. Falstad of Walters Gardens as a sport of T. 'Samurai' purchased from Japan. The bright golden leaves clothe the stems on this vigorous and stoloniferous toad lily. In early summer, and sporadically into fall, the plants are topped with contrasting purple flowers on short stems. If you want to spotlight an area in your woodland garden, T. 'Gates of Heaven' is for you!
