The flowers are white to light pink with a flush of purple at the petal tips and tiny purple spots with bright yellow tones in the centre. Toad lilies are wonderful plants for the late summer and fall shade garden. Most grow on elegant arching stems often with lightly mottled foliage. They produce multitudes of ornate orchid-like flowers that are usually white (sometimes yellow) with various degrees of purple spotting.
