As I understand you can propagate Toad Lilys either by division or stem propagation, wondering what method has worked best for you and any hints or ideas that go along with it. Thx

Division is easy... most toad lilies produce a wide patch, and each of those suckering stems will produce enough roots to grow... but I'd rather dig a clump of 3 or more stems to plant in a group.

You can pretty much dig and divide through most of the summer, as they don't start flowering until late summer, early autumn.

Thanks, trying the stem cutting just to see if I can get them to root, but think the division that you talk about is the more efficient way. Beautiful plant, surprised more people do not grow them.
