Brand New Toad Lilies for only £7.99!

Here at Jersey Plants Direct we are always on the look-out for new, exciting plants. We have now added these fantastic Tricyrtis (Toad Lilies), a plant we think will bring something a little bit different and a pleasant change to your autumn garden.

These flowers are similar to orchids in appearance and will flower from mid summer to early autumn. They are renowned for their late flowering and ability to grow in the shade. Shady locations can delay the start of flowering and, weather permitting, the flowering period can last into early winter. These hardy perennials are easy to grow and best planted where the beauty and detail of their flowers can be admired.

Did you know – the species Tricyrtis imeldae grows in a Philippine region which is the home to the Tasaday tribe. It was told that Tasaday hunters would crush the plant’s parts leaving the scented juice on their hands in order to attract frogs and toads for food. This story is now believed to be untrue and the idea that someone can attract toads by scent seems silly, however this has done nothing to deter the use of the name!

Our three varieties available are Tricyrtis Blue Wonder, a purple and blue speckled Lily, Tricyrtis Empress, Cream with burgundy speckles and Tricyrtis Macropoda, yellow with burgundy speckles.

If you can’t decide, why not try our Toad Lily Collection for only £15.98 – saving £7.99!

All Toad Lilies will be despatched with FREE delivery during August. They will arrive in 9cm pots and are ready for immediate planting.
