Trycyrtis hirta pink flower

Woodland shade gardeners have long known the toadlily (Trycyrtis hirta ). This plant, along with many others will be available at Bullington Gardens Fall Plant Sale on Sept 8th & 9th.

‘Tojen’s claim to fame is its unspotted flowers, forming in clusters (cymes) primarily at the tips of its stems. These blooms measure up to 1 inch in length and showcase a subtle shade that lightens towards the center. Coupled with their yellow throats, these flowers charm a woodland setting. Complementing the splendor of its blooms, ‘Tojen’ bears unusually large, oval to oblong leaves, ranging from 6 to 15 inches in length.

‘Tojen’ thrives as a border plant, excels in woodland gardens, and adds elegance to shaded areas or naturalized spaces. ‘Tojen’ is a relatively undemanding plant. It thrives in average to moist, well-drained soils, ideally in partially shaded to fully shaded locations. Its preference leans towards soil with organic richness that is slightly acidic. While it is generally free from serious insect or disease problems, it may occasionally get slugs and snails.

A stoloniferous plant, ‘Tojen’ exhibits a non-invasive manner of colonization, gradually expanding its presence in the garden over time. To protect its roots during colder months, a light winter mulch serves as insulation.

In conclusion, the captivating Toadlily ‘Tojen’ boasts an exceptional blend of larger leaves and unspotted lavender blooms, earning it a distinguished place in the woodland garden.
