Toad lilies

This forest-edge genus, Tricyrtis, produces beautiful flowers in the autumn. The six-petalled flowers with bulging, shiny nectaries at the base, are upwardly held on wiry stems. The base colour is waxy white but the petals are liberally spotted with a strong mauve. The six stamens and three styles combine into a helicopter shape, the style segments fringed in tiny droplets of nectar.
There is a robust clump of Tricyrtis stolonifera in the middle of the woodland garden and the stronger-coloured Tricyrtis formosana is emerging along the path from Brookside Gate.
