Tricyrtis latifolia (Toad Lily) is a hardy perennial in the family Liliaceae that is native to China, typically growing in forests and on forest edges. Flowers have pale yellow tepals with purple-red spots, blooming from June-September.
Tricyrtis latifolia likes sandy or loamy well-drained soils of a non-alkaline variety and likes full sun or partial shade ideally at the edge of woodland. The leaves and young shoots can be cooked and eaten. The plant is a favourite of slugs. Propagation is from seed which requires 12 weeks cold stratification.
