Toad Lily is GardenWise

 The Toad Lily

With its beautiful orchid-like white flowers with purple flecks and graceful arching growth habit, Toad Lily (Tricyrtis hirta) compels anyone who gazes upon it to stop for a closer look. A must have for any  garden, the Toad Lily blooms from late summer through the fall season and happily grows in the shade, providing an unforgetable eye-catching colorful interest.  The plant  typically stands 2-3 feet tall and 1-2 feet wide, and can be planted in a border with moist well-drained soil, or in a shady nook under a grove of flowering trees for a fantastic fall display.  Toad Lily is a GardenWise all-time “must have” favorite.

  1. I got my first Toad Lily just last year and I’m such a big fan of this beautiful plant now. The flowers are just exquisite and anything that’s this lovely that will grow in the shade is definitely a big winner with me. I will dub it ‘Prince Lily’ from now on!
