I see toad lillies for sale in flower catalogues fairly consistently.

They like shade, they prefer damp locations, like along a stream or spring but will tolerate drier conditions.Toad lillies bloom in the autumn.

I've grown them from seed, this is a great way to increase the patch.
Toad lillies bloom the first year from seed in Georgia (USA) if the seed is planted immediately.
Here in the southern Appalacian mountains, Toadlilly seed that I brought up from my garden in GA and planted in the winter produced some blooms the following autumn as well.
