Re: Toadlilies

Not much help here, Kitty. When I moved down here, toad lilies were one of two or three plants in my kit. But they couldn't take the heat and survived only a couple of years. They [and tree peonies] are about the only north-happy plants I miss.

But I would guess that since they spread by underground stems [stoleniferousness?] they will likely survive all sorts of abuse as long as it chills down sufficiently in winter. Most plants of that sort seem to.

Gene and anyone else:
Two of my toadlilies (Trycirtis) stuck their noses out a little too early
and the new green rosettes of Soname and Tojen were totally browned out by
the cold the other night. I'm sure they'll put out more new growth, but
will this set them back? And should I do anything for them?
