Quick Overview:

This unique perennial produces a profusion of two inch wide, brilliant orange blossoms with heavy red specking and shading on each of the six overlapping petals.  They are produced atop mid-sized plants with green, sword-shaped foliage like that of a tall bearded iris.  Blackberry lily blooms for weeks in late summer, and its season of interest is extended into fall with tan, pear-shaped pods which burst open to reveal clusters of black seeds resembling blackberries, hence the common name. They are persistent through the winter and are attractive in fresh or dried flower arrangements.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in full sun. Likes moist soils, but poorly-drained ones, particularly in winter, can be fatal. Clumps slowly expand by creeping rhizomes. May self-seed in optimum growing conditions which helps keep these somewhat short-lived perennials in the garden.
