Because of its stoloniferous nature, this used to be called Tricyrtis stolonifera. We assume that the specific name "formosana" is in reference to the island of Formosa (now Taiwan) where this plant is found. Tricyrtis formosana var. stolonifera has narrow, glossy, dark green leaves with occasional purple speckling. That same characteristic is true of the star-shaped flowers as well. They are dramatically splashed with purple spots. The upward facing flowers are held in branched arrangements at the stem terminals. Grow this herbaceous perennial in a somewhat moist woodland setting for best results.

Early autumn.  32 in. x 18 in.
