Thank you my first time with them Toto supposed to like a woodland setting with dappled shade so lets hope they over winter .. growing between coprosma which not supposed to be fully hardy but survived last winter.

Yes Sandra .. small versions of lily like flowers on a perennial shrub worth a try perhaps under your tree if you ve any room left now..

If it doesn't work under your tree Sandra I'm willing to take it's place but don't tell Baz.

5 Sep, 2009

6 Sep, 2009

 

PLEASE don't stop, Bb! I agree with Deida - it's lovely and I'd like to see more of your flowers! :-))

6 Sep, 2009

 

I think it's beautiful Bonkers !!! Now I have to run outside and see if mine are in bloom. You're going to love having it in the garden being it flowers when not much else is in bloom. It going to look right at home in your woodland garden !

6 Sep, 2009

 

He he no upset Deida - Spritz just saying the conversations take on a way of their own whatever I submit ..certainly not in a position to complain some of the comments I make lol

Thanks Flower amidst your Nigella which a little beaten by the rain but still happy ..Jane been out today taking lots of cuttings so hopefully we can return some of the favours we been sent ..

6 Sep, 2009

 

I thank you Jane ! Hope you know that it's not necessary though, I just love seeing something I had growing in my garden last year growing happily in a friend's garden thousands of miles away !....;-)

Oh, I love these BB.......great for the end of summer...and really exotic looking....:o) Pleased you found yours Amy...remember you getting it last year....

9 Sep, 2009

 

Bonkersbon - We've had these a few years now, but we do grow them in pots. That does give us the advantage of being able to a more sheltered & warmer spot for the winter.

9 Sep, 2009

 

Glad you found it Amy ..yes Janey nice gap fillers this time of year when other things fading ..hope they not too tender Meanie as need to get used to Yorkshire climate .

Lovely Bb,I bought some this year but sadly no flowers after reading this I`ll try them again in the shady part...........

14 Sep, 2009

 

So pleased to see one in the flesh, it is a beauty, looked at them on ebay this year but was wary, might give them a try now.

17 Sep, 2009

 

Lovely shot. I took some close ups of my toad lilies at the weekend but all came out blurred. I haven't got you knack. Yours were obviously earlier than mine to flower. There's still only a few open now!

30 Sep, 2009

 

Its beautiful!
Can someone tell me where Treacle Town is???

15 Oct, 2009

 

I've grown these toad lilly's and just love them. They are buried under a few feet of snow in the winter and still manage to come through. Mine are grown in the shade and usually bloom from late August till frost in November which is a long bloom time when not much else is going on,

Thanks for the info regarding snow Valerie...we have had a lot over last few weeks and its good to know they will come back.Ours are in semi shade...which seems to suit........
