Fall has always been my favorite season; maybe its the transition of the color palette. As my summer garden begins to fade I began to explore other possibilities to keep the garden lively with color. Toad lilies keep shady gardens from getting dull at the end of the season. This easy-care perennial offers intricate, orchid-like flowers from late summer to mid-fall. They grow to 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide.
Right now I am feeling guilty because my husband is outside raking leaves while I am inside painting with watercolors and pen & ink. I think it’s time to take a break from painting and become a “clean-up artist”.
I woud love to know if anyone has succesfully grown this flower.
