Dark green foliage, heavily spotted in dark purple, gives this Toad Lily the overall effect of darker flowers than other species or cultivars.
Valued for its late season flower which resembles an orchid.
Useful in pond-side plantings where the area is constantly moist. Prefers constant moisture, but will grow quite well in a regular garden situation as long as there is not a long period of dryness. Will spread to make a nice colony, but should not be considered aggressive.
