I spotted a spotted surprise

Indeed. I spotted it, but it was already spotted :)
This Tricyrtis (maybe hirta?) proved to be a really nice, although very belated surprise.
I got it in a trade, not sure by what means, and I said to myself, whatever, let's see what it can do.
I have (well, HAD - it didn't come back this spring, and I really have no idea why) this Tricyrtis latifolia with brownish/yellowish blooms. Didn't really fancy it. So when I got another Tricyrtis I wasn't too excited about it.
Planted it in a really shady place, under a plum tree, in poor soil and I let it be.
And here it is, a few days ago... full of buds&blooms!
