It's officially Autumn, the Toad Lilies have bloomed!

I love these small lilies, they are so beautiful and extremely easy to grow.  One of my favorite characteristics of this lily is how the flower blooms in multiple locations along the stem, very dramatic and exotic! 

I've planted these in mostly shade with dapples of sunlight throughout the day and then an intense blast of direct sunlight in the afternoon for about an hour.  They seem to be happy and have multiplied significantly since I planted them in 2010.

Common Toad Lily (Tricyrtis hirta) is softly fuzzy with hairs. Its arching stems bear clusters of upright flowers. The white orchid-like flowers are spotted with dark purple. It grows to 3-feet tall. Zones 4-9
