If you thought Lilies only bloomed in the spring or early summer I have one for you that blooms during Autumn. It’s called the Toad Lily:
These little beauties are just starting to form buds and only a few have begun to bloom. However in a week or so they will all be in bloom and what a pretty sight that will be! I love the Toad Lilies freckled petals. They are so tiny and delicate.
I must admit that the plant isn’t much to look at as it grows through the summer, but once it begins to bloom it becomes one of the stars of my Fall garden.
Do any of you grow any of the Toad Lily species?
