This Terra Nova introduction is very similar to T. 'Samurai'. Despite the minute differences, it is a magnificent plant, spreading to form a 3' wide patch. The stems rise to 1' tall, clothed with shiny green leaves, each surrounded by a golden border. In early summer and sporadically into fall, the patches are topped with 1" wide, starfish-shaped flowers of white with heavy purple speckling. Toad lilies are best in slightly moist-to-average garden soils.
