Look what i find yesterday in "Woodie's".It is Tricyrtis formosana(i find in google) Foliage is not very good,look like got wind damage,but roots is all right.
Toad lily is an upright plant with un unusual flowers,and it would suit a shady border or open woodland garden.Like acid soil.

I bought pack with 7 tiny bulbs,and got just one with flowering.Hope next year will be better luck.I think i did wrong planted beside others flowers.But pot look so poor,i thought be better.Thats look good,but for bulbs was bad
Bessera elegans is a species of showy, dainty plants from southwestern Mexico, growing on wiry stems 50 cm or taller carrying umbels of exquisite pendant parasol-shaped flowers in scarlet, crimson, pink, lavender and purple. The interior white markings are always interestingly patterned and striped. To fully appreciate their intricate beauty, one must look up into the umbel. Can be temperamental, but well worth the effort, needs to be kept dry while winter-dormant as cold temperatures and moisture equal rot. It needs warm temperatures to start into growth so is late to start growing in spring in cool climates.
