Blackberry Lily Seeds
(Belamcanda chinensis) Perennial. Zones 4-8. Also known as Leopard Flower and named for the Greek goddess of the rainbow, Blackberry Lily is a stunning perennial that will add beautiful colour and whimsy to your garden.
Though the spotted, floating blossoms strongly resemble the Tiger Lily, Blackberry Lily is actually a member of the Iris family.
In early summer, sprays of showy orange, red-dotted flowers bloom on tall, 3-4 foot, naked stems. Flowers give way to long seed pods that split open in late summer to reveal huge seed clusters that look just like juicy, ripe blackberries (but they are not edible!).
The open, six petalled fan shaped flowers attract many types of butterflies and the unique seed heads are striking in dried arrangements.
The Blackberry Lily has a long history in Chinese medicine. It is a bitter, cooling herb that supports the lungs and liver, and is used to lower fevers and reduce inflammation.
Blackberry Lily is easily grown in average, well-drained soils in full sun. It is a self-seeding perennial that flowers two years after germination.
**50-70% germination** Blackberry Lily seeds require 30-60 days cold stratification.
You will be 100% satisfied with the quality of our Blackberry Lily seeds, especially if grown in an organic garden.
