“This new toad lily is one that we found hiding amongst our stock of Tricyrtis ‘Imperial Banner’. While similar to its parent, T. ‘White Waves’ has none of the green streaking in the middle of the creamy central part of the leaf. This results in a more dramatic leaf variegation but slightly less vigor. For us, the 15″ tall clumps are topped in early October with attractive purple-spotted flowers… very stunning! ” (from Plant Delights Catalog 2008)
