The toad lily is one of the most underrated garden plants. It has beautiful, dense folliage from spring through fall, and can handle extreme summer heat and clay soil without issue. The leaves are very pretty, and the plant slowly spreads to form a clumb, but is not at all aggressive. The rediculously beautiful fall orchid-like speckles flowers are just an added bonus. Definitely one of my all time favorites!
