Tricyrtis 'Empress'

A modern, sturdy, reliable Toad Lily. Typical flowers with a white ground and distinct purple spots.

There is a modern trend to look for a 'wow' factor in plants, an irritating myopic trend that values plants only for their ability to startle or surprise. If that is your thing, I can recommend agricultural electric fencing wound round the garden, to achieve the same thing without the tiresome vexation of foliage.

If in your search for a wow you have snuffled and scurried through the undergrowth to Tricyrtis, then snuffle on!

This particular Empress just ain't got it!
