Alice Staub Toad Lily – Trycrtis hirta ‘Alice Staub’

December 9, 2016 Back to Picks >


This trycirtis had been grown by the late Alice Staub for many years in her garden in Houston. This shade loving perennial forms 24″-30″ tall clumps of gracefully arching stems that beckon you to come and admire the clusters of miniature orchid-like flowers in late summer and fall. It prefers part shade and a moist, well-drained soil.
