Blackberry Lily (Iris domestica formerly Belamcanda chinensis)
Walton County, GA
We bought some plant starts a year ago. I didn’t really expect them to bloom this year but…
The Blackberry Lily is native to southeast Asia. I saw them first beside the road, in Jones County, Georgia, just north of the Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge. They get their name from the ripen seeds which look like blackberries.
