The common name of this Iris (formerly Belamcanda chinensis) is a bit confusing. True that the orange, red spotted flowers resemble more of a lily than an Iris. Occasionally, when grown from seeds, unspotted orange or yellow flowers can appear. They are held on wiry stems 70+ cm tall arising from the basal sword-shaped leaves. Later the seed pods split open to reveal a blackberry-like seed cluster (hence the common name of blackberry lily).
Easy to grow, floriferous perennial; it may self-seed in optimum growing conditions.
Germination: easy; sown in early spring may start flowering in the first year. Seed mix from various spotted and unspotted flowers.
