Belamcanda chinensis ‘Freckle Face’


Blackberry Lily

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.099.150


Also known as the Blackberry Lily, this is a close cousin to the familiar bearded Iris. It forms a low clump of green sword-shaped leaves, with taller stems of cup-shaped bright golden-yellow flowers, speckled with orange. Attractive pods heads appear later, which split open to reveal clusters of black seeds. Seed pods make unique dried flowers for arrangements. Attractive to butterflies. Clumps should be divided every 3 to 4 years in the spring. Leaves are sometimes attacked by the Iris Borer, particularly in Eastern North America. Clean up old leaves in the fall and dispose.
