This rare Japanese toad lily is very similar to T. macrantha and will probably become a subspecies of it. The arching stems are adorned with clasping green leaves...slightly narrower than T. macrantha. In September and October, the stalks are adorned with both axillary flowers and terminal clusters of large golden bells. T. ishiiana is best planted high where the floral show can truly be appreciated. High humidity and/or good soil moisture keeps the leaves from desiccating when the flowers are borne.
