The Toadlily should be preferably located in a place where it can have at least a few hours a day of direct solar light. Perennial plants mainly have a spring and summer development. During the coldest months of the year the aerial part can completely dry out, to come up the year after.These plants aren't afraid of the cold weather and can be grwon in the garden throughout the whole year.
The development is erect, they tend to grow both in height and in width, giving origin to a rounded shrub. This plant in the autumn assumes a white colouring; it is small in size and can reach 60 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. These plants are perennial herbs.
In the spring letís fertilize perennials periodically, using a specific fertilizer for flowering plants, to add to the irrigating water, every 20-25 days; or we can spread a slow release fertilizer near the plants every 3-4 months.
Water regularly, every 1-2 weeks , wetting the soil deeply with about 2-3 glasses of water ,but waiting for the substratum to dry completely between one watering and another; avoid leaving stagnant water. These plants display a pretty long period of vegetational rest. During this time it isn't necessary to water the plants.
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
We suggest growing these plants in a slightly damp substratum, which isnít too drained.
