(incorrectly aka: T. affinis 'Tricolor') In spring, this is the most asked about plant in our woodland garden. As Tricyrtis 'Tricolor' emerges, the young shoots are green marbled with both borders and vertical bands of white. The entire leaf is overlain with a dramatic purple flush, making an amazing sight. As the growth expands upward, the purple begins to fade. The 2' tall stalks are topped with light lavender flowers with dark purple spots in early summer.
