Beginning in late summer, white, orchid-like flowers heavily spotted with purple appear all along the stems. Wonderfully arching, hairy stems support the green, lance shaped leaves which are arranged in a ladder like fashion. They are a welcome site considering most other plants are finished for the season by this time. Plant near the front of the border or along pathways where its unique flowers can be viewed at close range.
Tricrytis performs best in humus-rich, evenly moist soil in partial to full shade. It is very long-lived and easy to grow. It tends to be a late-riser, so don't worry if you don't see this plant coming up with other perennials in early spring. Your patience will be greatly rewarded. This species is not a spreader and large clumps do not form. However, once plants are well-established, divisions can be made in the spring if desired.
