Description

This beautiful early-flowering Toad Lily has magnificent purple-spotted yellow flowers on tall dividing stems and is excellent in a shady location. It is native to China, typically growing in forests and on forest edges where it blooms from June-September, preferring sandy or loamy well-drained acidic soils, and either full sun or partial shade.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
