Tall Tales Toad Lily

I have always been in awe of Toad Lily .. first the name is totally deceptive .. you think it must be some kind of plant that toads like .. and thinking what toads like is a little .. well .. you know .. ugh ? The first time I saw a flower bloom, after I got over my "ugh" period , and planted this amazing little gem .. the flower was amazing ! It reminded me of an orchid. So intricate and delicate looking. Yet it can handle our winters and keep coming back looking gorgeous. This one in particular has been rather strange .. it is so tall and no branching. If truth were to be told, I don't even remember planting one in this area. Now how Twilight Zone is that ?
