Tricyrtis 'Momoyama' (dyslexic Japanese for "yo mama is a toad") is one of several toad lilies bred for the Japanese cut flower industry. Tricyrtis 'Momoyama' is one of the finest garden specimen toad lilies we grow. It appears to have primarily Tricyrtis hirta blood with a tiny bit of Tricyrtis lasiocarpa mixed in. Tricyrtis 'Momoyama' makes a 3' tall clump topped, starting in mid-September and continuing through October, with heavily-branched terminal panicles of mauvy-lavender virtually unspotted flowers, although the stigma is heavily spotted purple...not such a bad stigma to live with.
