October

 

Tricyrtis Formosa ‘Dark Beauty’

Commonly known as the Toad Lily, this is a plant that I always look forward to in the autumn. It sits just below my kitchen window in a very shady north facing border. It never fails to lift my spirits on a dull day. The purple spotted star shaped flowers remind me of an orchid and are set off well against the smooth deeply veined leaves. It is the perfect plant for a tricky spot where you want late interest. The toad lily flowers from September through to the end of October and is fully hardy requiring little or no attention. It makes a lovely and unusual addition to any shady or woodland border. 30cm W x 50cmH
