Arbor Gate's Picks of the Month
Alice Staub Toad Lily – Trycrtis hirta ‘Alice Staub’
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.
