Belamcanda chinensis


Blackberry Lily

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.099.100


The Blackberry Lily is actually a relative of the familiar Bearded Iris, which is apparent from the long, sword-shaped green leaves. Plants form a large clump in time, bearing clusters of bright orange flowers, the petals spotted with bright red. Flowers last only a short time but are followed by pods of showy black seeds, which look a bit like kernels of corn. These are excellent for cutting, and may also be dried for winter arrangements. Prefers full sun and a deep, rich soil. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring.
