Toad lilies, named for their spotted flowers, can grow up to 2′-3′ tall, although this one is only about 12″. The flowers are small, just over 1″ across, and will continue to develop from buds located at each leaf joining all along the stem over time. They need soil that doesn’t completely dry out and prefer the shade, although a little morning sun is good for developing flower buds.                                                                                           (Click on any photo to enlarge it to screen size.)
