Tiny Bright Spot



This Dog Tooth Lily of the cultivar Pagoda, makes a tiny bright spot under an Autumn Moon Japanese Maple. The Dog Tooth is native to the Eastern U.S. It's name comes from the shape of it's corm. I was surprised to learn that they can grow to be 2 feet tall. This little clump is only about 7 inches high.

Very pretty little flowers. They almost look like garden ornaments.
Happy GTS,

Isn't that a fabulous lily! I wants one, oh yes I do.

(I also wants a Japanese maple but, alas the Wisconsin would kill it before December.)
