How to plant tricyrtises

Tricyrtises or toad lilies are exotic, shade-loving perennials producing exquisite orchid-like flowers and glossy lance-shaped leaves. Plant en masse, interlace with low-growing ferns or mix with a selection of anemones blanda/nemerosa, crocuses, cyclamens, English bluebells, erythorniums, trilliums or snowdrops for a magical woodland garden.

Plant in moist, well-drained, humus rich soil in deep or partial shade. In cold areas, grow in a warm position (but not sunny) to encourage flowering before the first frost and provide a good mulch in winter. If the soil dries out in summer it may affect the foliage so provide a good mulch in the spring to help combat this.

Always unpack and plant on arrival.

Potential problems, pests and diseases:

Generally, tricyrtises do not suffer from any serious diseases or pest problems. However, snails and slugs can be an issue as they enjoy eating their foliage. To avoid this, provide protection.
