From Mrs. Masaoka of Japan, via Clarence Falstad of Walters Gardens, comes a spectacular golden-edged leaf form of the spreading Tricyrtis. formosana. This easy-to-grow and vigorous woodland plant makes a nice mass of 1' tall stems. 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.
