Toad Lilies

Blue Toad LilyToad lilies have become increasingly popular in the last few years, as gardeners have fallen in love with their orchid-like blooms. Toad lilies bloom in late summer or early fall, providing an exotic display just when other flowers are dying back.

Botanical Name:


Most Popular Colors: Purple, blue, yellow, white.

Blooming Season: Late summer to early fall.

Soil Preferences: Rich, slightly acidic soil.

Climate Preferences: Toad lilies are winter-hardy in areas in which the winters don't drop below 0 degrees.

Sun Exposure: Shade.

Landscaping Tips: Where to plant these small-but-magnificent flowers? Anywhere with shade. Toad lilies prefer a woodland setting, but shade provided by overhanging trees or structures will work.

Planting: Plant astilbe 18 to 24 inches apart, and water in well.


  • Water toad lilies generously (twice per week or more) to keep the plants constantly, uniformly moist.
  • Consider adding mulch to control weeds - toad lilies will love being watered, but unwanted growers will sprout with the same exuberance.
