  • Unique Charactersticsperennials.com: Toad-lilies are exotic-looking and rewarding plants for late-season display in the shady garden. Native to the Himalayas to eastern Asia, they grow naturally at the edge of forests, preferring shade and rich, moist soil, hardy enough to handle the sudden changes of winter. This selection forms a compact mound of dark green leaves with long arching stems topped with white starfish-like flowers heavily spotted with blue-purple, appearing late summer and lasting into the fall. Outstanding in a woodland garden and in mixed containers destined for the shade. Deserves a special spot where it can be observed up close. Attractive to butterflies. Easy to grow and long-lived. Late to appear in spring.
