Quick Overview:

?Hello Yellow? is a dwarf cultivar that produces foliage to only 10? tall with flower spikes to 18-20? tall. Lily-like, unspotted, butter yellow flowers (to 2? across) have 6 petal-like perianth segments. Flowers appear in early to mid-summer in sprays above the foliage on wiry, naked stems typically rising to 20? tall. Sword-shaped, iris-like, medium green leaves appear in flattened fans. Flowers give way to pear-shaped seed pods that split open when ripe (late summer), with each pod revealing a blackberry-like seed cluster, hence the common name of blackberry lily. Formerly known as Belamcanda chinensis.

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.
