Large clear yellow bell shaped flowers bloom along the stem in late summer and early Fall. This is one of the best toad lilies but it is slower to spread making an impressive clump in 2-3 years. Preferring a sheltered semi-shaded site with adequate moisture they make ideal subjects for the woodland garden. Propagation: By dividing rhizomes, tubers, corms or bulbs (including offsets); from seed.
