Toad-lilies are exotic-looking but easy perennials for growing in shady areas. Leafy, arching stems produce a fall display of starfish-like flowers that are excellent for cutting. The species is native to Taiwan and prefers medium to wet, well-drained soil in part to full shade. This selection features purple flowers with darker purple spotting and a yellow throat, held above green leaves edged in golden yellow. Beautiful in the garden, but also useful for cutting. Deserves a special place where they can be admired up close, either beside a patio or at the edge of a bed. In colder zones this may need protection from early frosts to bloom reliably. Clumps spread slowly to form a small patch. Easily divided in early spring.
