Japanese Toad Lily
A fascinating plant in the Lily family that is perfect for adding vertical interest in a sheltered, shady border or woodland garden. The flowers emerge in late summer and are quite small (2.5 cm), so to appreciate the intricately patterned, orchid like blooms site the plant where it can be easily seen.
Despite an exotic appearance toad lilies are hardy and easily grown in average, medium to wet, well-drained, slightly acidic soil in part to full shade. The soil should not be allowed to dry out.
If given perfect conditions they should self seed and once they are established the flower stems make great cut flowers for exotic arrangements. Easy and desirable.
