Growing off shaded rocky cliffs, Tricyrtis macrantha is best viewed from below. Famed UK plantsman Brian Mathew writes, "Of all the tricyrtis species, the Japanese endemic T. macrantha and its allies probably rate as having the most fascinating and beautiful flowers." In September and October, the long arching stems are topped with large bright yellow bells, speckled red inside. The very rare, true T. macrantha is quite similar to the more commonly grown T. macranthopsis, except that the leaves are wider and the leaves do not clasp around the stems as in T. ishiiana and T. macranthopsis.
