Tall Toad Lily !


I have had Toad Lily before .. and never did they get this tall .. and .. of course I lost the tag, so I have no idea what one this is .. but I am looking forward to the mystery buds opening on it : )

I love Toad Lillies. Aren't their blooms awesome in the fall? Mine are looking alittle ratty this year, because the shade they were getting in the past from the almost mature Crepe Myrtle was lost. The tree reprouted but it is still fairly small & not providing enough shade yet. :( I'm hoping they will recover now that cooler weather is setting in here. I'm bad about keeping tags too. I just started in the past year trying to keep up with them so I would know the names. :)

Hi there again girl ! LOL
My toad lilies have disappeared in the raised bed .. not sure but maybe lack of watering .. yikes ! guilty! .. and they look so much like an exotic orchid flower don't they ? something to look forward to in the Fall .. I saw one called "Moonlight" and boy, I would love that one .. soft yellow .. just struck me. Usually I am very good about tags but a few slip through the cracks .. damn !
